Apollo, Zeus and Aphrodite are the protagonists of the brand new Visconti 'Mirage Mythos' fountain pen collection. Greek mythology teaches that the Olympian gods are immortal beings, governing the life and death of human beings. These three personalities that Visconti selected represent three different supernatural forces that inspired this new Mythos Collection.
This mauve/purple resin fountain pen with bronze shading is named after Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Daughter of Zeus, her most recognizable symbols are the dove and the sparrow.
The cap elegantly closes with a magnetic twist closure, and is accented by gold-plated trim. The center ring is engraved with the inscription, MYTHOS, and a V to emulate a stylized Mount Olympus. The brass grip section has a soft brushed satin finish.
The pen is completed with a large #6 steel nib with a yellow gold vermeil finish, made by Schmidt in Germany. A converter is included, and it also accepts standard international short cartridges.
