Description

A Unicode font for polytonic Greek.

From the project website (accessed 2017-11-07):

Why is this font called “Aristarcoj”? Because it appears as the name of the Greek mathematician Aristarchus when displayed in its own characters, such as in a drop-down menu. The standard non-Unicode characters are mapped like the WinGreek fonts, making them mutually compatible. It contains no Latin character set, nor any other language (except Coptic, which coexists in the standard Greek Unicode range), and is thus a small file.
