Are these monoplanar brakes Chorus or Athena?

Title says it all. I read a lot of stuff about them but still have trouble making the difference between the two. Would be really grateful if someone could help me out.

I wouldn't do that with an aluminium frame. Some say it could take it. I prefer not to risk it, personally. I had a nice Shamal set I wanted to put on this bike and had to skip for this exact reason.
