Marlen dedicates the Ippocrate Collection to the world of medicine and health care professionals. On the barrel is a bronze and silver relief of Hippocrates, the Greek physician, referred to as the “Father of Medicine”. Hippocratic theory revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece and established the Hippocratic Oath. On both, the clip and the coin placed on the slanted top of the pen, is the staff of Asciepius. Both are crafted from Sterling. This medical insignia of a serpent-entwined rod or “snake and staff” is still used today as a symbol of medicine and health care. This symbol originally was derived from the Greek god Asciepius, who represented medicinal arts and healing in Greek mythology.
The Ippocrate Collection is available in ballpoint, rollerball and fountain pen in a selection of four classic colors of black, midnight blue, burgundy or classic white. The fountain pen’s stainless-steel nib is two-tone gold and silver. It’s available in fine, medium or broad. Each mode takes the most common refills available so your color choices in all are at least 10 colors in several point choices.
