Need help identifying ''S'' logo pantograph on Campy seat post: Scapin , Serotta ?

The title pretty much says it all. This seat post came on a Marinoni I recently acquired, I just need to identify which company's logo is pantographed on this seat post in order to describe it properly. I'm thinking it could be Somec, Serotta, Scapin, I'm not sure.

Thanks for your help!

Not Serotta. Beyond that, I'm of little help.

Unless you can show me a Sharpie that can engrave lettering 1mm deep in aluminum I have to assume it wasn't made with a Sharpie...

I don't get where he's going with that either. Sorry Oregon...

As for the ''S'' being the Sabatini logo. EjustE, thanks, but I have to ask if you know for sure or it is just an hypothesis. The logos on the forks seem a bit different. I would not want to misrepresent an item and I'd much rather say I don't know rather than mislead a potential buyer.

Word to the wise (or those with wives, rather): a Google image search of Sabatini results in thousands of pictures of some foxy tennis player. Jus' saying.

Mainducoyote: I'll be sending you other annoying PMs in the next couple of days, so maybe we can theorize then.
