Montblanc pays homage to Gaius Maecenas with the 20th edition of their Patron of the Arts series, who was a personal advisor to Octavius as well as a supporter of young artists.

While Maecenas has enjoyed immense wealth and political friendship as advisor to the Roman Emperor Augustus, he true passion was art and culture. This can be found in reference in the recorded patron in the history of the arts and culture. He is also the known symbolic figure and representative for cultural responsiblity and selfness commitment.

The pen barrel is inspired by the roman architecture. It is shaped to look like the columns of the Roman temples using marbled lacquer.
On the pen base, there is an inlaid of a Roman coin featuring Maecenas image. And on the pen cap top, it the usual Mont Blanc snowy star.
