Introducing the latest treasure in the Visconti collection, the Mirage Mythos Fountain Pen - Athena, now available at Lemur Ink. This exceptional piece is a tribute to the legacy of Athena, the goddess of wisdom, warfare, and handicraft in ancient Greek mythology. Celebrated for her strategic prowess and her guiding hand in arts and intellect, Athena's influence has been revered through the ages, particularly during the Italian Renaissance as a symbol of wisdom, the arts, and classical education.

"The Oxford Companion to Classical Literature" highlights Athena's depiction as "Glaukopis," meaning "bright-eyed" or "gleaming eyes," a nod to her portrayal with eyes reflecting the colors of the sea, symbolizing serenity, wisdom, and alertness. This pen, inspired by such profound symbolism, is designed to ignite the creative spirits of artists and writers, embodying the serene and wise essence of Athena through its sea blue color.

The Mirage Mythos Athena fountain pen from Visconti features a high-quality large steel nib, made in Germany and plated in exquisite yellow gold vermeil, ensuring a writing experience that is as luxurious as it is smooth. The grip section, made of brass with a soft brushed satin finish, provides a comfortable and steady hand for those inspired writing moments. Moreover, the pen boasts a new center ring, engraved with "MYTHOS" and a stylized "V" that mirrors the grandeur of Mount Olympus, linking this modern masterpiece to its mythological origins.
