Etymology Edit

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions weapon description alludes to the The Honest Woodcutter tale. This tale is one of Aesop's Fables, numbered 173 in the Perry Index. It serves as a cautionary tale on the need for cultivating honesty, even at the price of self-interest. The Greek version of the story tells of a woodcutter who accidentally dropped his axe into a river. The god Hermes takes pity on him. The god dived into the water and returned with a golden axe, but the woodcutter said it was not his, and returned the same answer when a silver axe was brought to the surface. Only when his own tool is produced does he claim it. Impressed by his honesty, the god allows him to keep all three axes.

Gold is a chemical element with the symbol Au and atomic number 79. It is a dense, soft, malleable and ductile metal with a bright yellow color and luster, the properties of which remain without tarnishing when exposed to air or water.
