Dried Ink on an Oak Coffee Table

A pen leaked on to my oak coffee table and dried. I put several household cleaners on it and let it set for hours but it won't come off. Any ideas?

Try antibacterial hand gel. Put on stain and allow to sit for 10-15min. then wipe off with soft cloth. This has worked for me on ink, crayon, black scuff marks even permanant marker and it hasn't harmed any surface I've used it on.

Rubbing Alcohol will get most of it off without harming the surface.
