What is the LTC Athena™ font?
LTC Athena brings a somewhat “lost” hot-metal typeface back from obscurity into digital Opentype format. In fall 2012, printing historian Rich Hopkins contacted P22 type foundry regarding some inked type drawings he had just uncovered from his acquisition of the Baltimore-based “Baltotype” company some 20 years ago. It is a rare face whose original matrices were destroyed and thought fully lost. The drawings included a full upper and lower case set, numerals, basic punctuation, and alternate forms of some letters.
The design is a narrow deco-flavored design from the 1950s with a curious avoidance of straight lines in the stems and main strokes. More…
The face has been expanded to over 340 characters by Miranda Roth and includes ligatures as well as a full Pan-European character set. It is released through the Lanston division of P22 in consideration of its earlier incarnation as a metal typeface.

Are you looking for a free download of LTC Athena™? Most of the fonts on MartinWaitFonts.com are premium, which means LTC Athena™ is not a free font.
You won't find LTC Athena™ as a free download, so I would advise you just to go ahead and pay for it and download LTC Athena™ HERE. You can find some other great options here on MartinWaitFonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for LTC Athena™ are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
If you really want LTC Athena™ and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on MyFonts.com.

Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
