Description Visconti has updated the Mirage series with the Mythos collection, of divinely gorgeous resins, such as this Visconti Mirage Mythos Athena fountain pen. Rich swirling colors of turquoise and bronze 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. The goddess Athena, who in ancient Greece was associated with wisdom, warfare and handicraft, but who later, since the Italian Renaissance, became an international symbol of wisdom, the arts and classical learning. 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.
