the 'original' Latin wording is "Scire. Potere. Audere. Tacere. ZOROASTER"

He must be the guy who said that the word 'gothic' has a weird origin:Yes, that seems to be right; the Czech title given for the source
from 'argotique' (the French 'argot' is a language whose words are
obtained by permutations of groups of letter with euphonic effects) we
have 'art gotique'. ...
seems to mean "The Mystery of Cathedral(s)". Our library contains
a 1964 edition of this book, originally (the book says) published
in 1922; the full title is
Le myste`re des cathe'drales et l'interpre'tation e'sote'rique
des symboles herme'tiques du grand oeuvre
(and "Fulcanelli" is listed in the catalog as a pseudonym).
These four (not quite) Latin words occur, with attribution to
"Zoroastre", as the epigraph to the "Conclusion" (page 223 in
this edition); no further source is given. "Fulcanelli" clearly
does write "potere" and in bold letters translates it into
French as "POUVOIR".
Considering the profusion of pseudonyms used by authors in this
sort of "occult" writing, I think it unlikely that the "Zoroaster"
involved here is the ancient Persian writer.
