    Summary: A majuscule Greek font
    Description: 
    As it is known, the Greek alphabet was used in majuscule form for over a
    millennium before the minuscule letters gradually replaced it until they became
    the official script in the 9th century A.D. Thereafter, majuscule letters were
    confined to sparse use as initials or elaborate titles until the Italian
    Renaissance.
    
    The new art of Typography, as well as the need of the humanists to mimic the
    ancient Greco-Roman period brought back the extensive use of the majuscule
    letter-forms in both Latin and Greek typography. Greek books of the time were
    printed using the contemporary Byzantine hand with which they combined capital
    letters modelled on the Roman antiquity, i.e. with thick and thin strokes and
    serifs. At the same time the Byzantine majuscule tradition, principally used on
    theological editions, remainned alive until the early 19th century.
    
    This font has been designed by George D. Matthiopoulos.
