MONTBLANC 2018 WRITERS EDITION HOMER FOUNTAIN PEN (F) NIB #117851 - NEW IN BOX. This is the famous opening sentence of the Iliad, the classical Greek epic poem by Homer (8th century BC).
To Homer, the founder of Western literature, Montblanc dedicated the Writers Edition of 2018. The barrel of this impressive fountain pen has the shape of a horse, thereby referring to the Trojan horse. The Iliad tells how the Greek soldiers conquered Troy by hiding inside a big, wooden horse, which was presented to the Trojans as a gift.Once the horse was taken inside the city, the Greeks got out and overpowered their surprised enemies. Thereby, this writing instrument also is an ode to Odysseus, the great mythological heroe who came up with the idea of the Trojan horse.
