Actually, just to clarify what I'm referring to about the shapes in old Greek
manuscripts, take a look at:

Take a look at the "f,F" row and you can see what I meant about the phi
character. These particular examples cover the period from about 800 bce to
400 ad. Of course, as fonts go, these are designed more for utility than for
beauty, but ...

So, I'm always happy to hear about any usable fonts for ancient Greek.

And since I'm being a cranky old guy anyway - most sites that list "Greek
Fonts" have loads of fonts that have no Greek glyphs whatsoever - only the
normal Latin glyphs designed to "look like" what the designer thinks Greek
characters look like.

So, enough already....
