Description Visconti has updated the Mirage series with the Mythos collection, of divinely gorgeous resins, such as this Visconti Mirage Mythos Apollo fountain pen. Rich swirling colors of browns and gold are perfectly accented by the gold-plated clip and trim. The center trim band has been engraved with engraved the inscription MYTHOS and the V, which is similar to a stylized Mount Olympus, and the grip section has a brushed satin finish and matching engravings near the new, larger gold-plated steel nib. Apollo is the god of the arts, music, poetry and science, and the son of Zeus. The symbols that usually identify him are, among others, the Sun, the lyre, the bow and arrow. The magnetic cap closure secures the cap to prevent the refill from drying out, and the cap will post of the end of the barrel while writing, if that is your preference. The Visconti Mirage Mythos fountain pen comes packaged with a converter for use with bottled ink, and also accepts standard international short cartridges. Don't forget to customize your Visconti pen with the "My Pen System". Just include your first and last initials in the comments box, with a request for My Pen System Inserts.
