In Poe's story, "The Cask of Amontillado," the Latin phrase Nemo Me Impune Lacessit is the motto of the Montresor family. It is exemplified in their family crest, which depicts a human foot crushing a snake that is simultaneously sinking its fangs into the heel of the foot. When provoked, Montresor lures his agressor, Fortunato, into the castle dungeon and walls him up alive. The phrase literally means: "No one provokes (or attacks) me with impunity (or without punishment)." It is the motto of Scotland and of the Order of the Thistle, first used on the coins of King James VI of Scotland (James I of England), and is nowadays associated with police funerals.
