Athena Ruby

Posted by Joel Kalvesmaki on November 14, 2011

Athena Ruby is a font for scholarly editions of Byzantine inscriptions, particularly those where transcribing the visual typology of the letters and symbols is critical, such as in seals and coins.

The glyph set covers the major ideal types of letterforms, ligatures, punctuation, and symbols found in inscriptions from the Byzantine cultural ambit, fourth through the fifteenth century. It currently supports the Latin and Greek alphabets.
