Phi – the concept known as the Divine Proportion – informs every aspect of the structure of the Tibaldi Clari Viri Limited Edition Alexander the Great Rollerball Pen. For example, the proportion between the pen’s cap and the visible portion of the barrel when the pen is closed equals the phi ratio, 1.618. Even the pen’s accompanying case is measured in multiples of the phi coefficient.

Alexander The Great
A military genius who always led by example, Alexander III of Macedon was a king, commander, politician, scholar and explorer. In little more than a decade, he single-handedly changed the nature of the ancient world. Born in the northern Greek kingdom of Macedonia, Alexander’s teacher was the philosopher Aristotle. After his father was assassinated, Alexander inherited the throne. He first dealt with enemies at home and reasserted Macedonian power within Greece. Against overwhelming odds, he then led his army to victories across the Persian territories of Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt without suffering a single defeat. His greatest victory was at the Battle of Gaugamela, in what is now northern Iraq in 331 BC. Aged 25, he became Great King of Persia – a kingdom spanning three continents, linked together in a network of trade and commerce and united by Greek language and culture.
