Argonauts of St Nicolas and The, Shells

Argonauts of St. Nicolas and the, Shells was a military order instituted by Charles III of Naples towards the end of the 14th century. The patron of the order was St. Nicolas, and the knights wore a collar formed of shells and silver hooks, from which hung a ship, with the motto Non credo tempori. Their name of "Argonauts of St. Nicolas and the Shells" arose from this: collar. They followed the rule of St. Benedict, and wore on days of ceremony a large cape or mantle of white silk, over which they, hung the collar.
