I have this ashtray and dont have a clue what it is I google it and everything is in greek There is a statue in Greece so Im thinking it is a greek god or maybe an emporor ...... anybody know anything about this ?
Sometime after WWII Arcillian was turned into a casino maybe this is from that but the city is Corfu this one is mispelled Corfou.
The only Mourant I can find is a rich Drug maker maybe his family owned the casino ???? Still searching

    Im getting a education in greek mythology I know who Achille's is now so now tracking down the ashtray.
    Achilles was the son of the nymph Thetis and Peleus, the king of the Myrmidons. Zeus and Poseidon had been rivals for the hand of Thetis until Prometheus, the fore-thinker, warned Zeus of a prophecy that Thetis would bear a son greater than his father. For this reason, the two gods withdrew their pursuit, and had her wed Peleus.[3]

    I have dated it back to the late 1800's to early 1900's and believe it was a Hotel between 1905 - 1920 but still having trouble learning Greek.
