Fonts Based in the Typeface Used in Old Greek Publications

Upright is based on the lowercase Greek letters in the typeface used by Demetrios Damilas for the edition of Isocrates, published in Milan in 1493. A digital revival, was prepared by Ralph P. Hancock, in his Milan (Mediolanum) font. Italic Greek were designed in 1802 by Richard Porson (1757 – 1808) and cut by Richard Austin. They were first used by Cambridge University Press in 1810. Capitals, Latin and Cyrillic, as well as the complete bold weights, have been designed in an attempt to create a well-balanced font. The font covers the Windows Glyph List, Greek Extended, various typographic extras and is available in regular, italic, bold and bold italic. The regular style of the font also covers IPA Extensions, Ancient Greek Numbers, Byzantine and Ancient Greek Musical Notation and several Open Type features (Case-Sensitive Forms, Small Capitals, Subscript, Superscript, Numerators, Denominators, Fractions, Old Style Figures, Historical Forms, Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures).
