    Summary: Theano Classical TrueType Fonts
    Description: 
    Theano is a common name for some fonts I have designed from historic
    samples. Most of these fonts were initially intended as Greek-only
    faces, but finally I found it interesting to supplement them with
    stylistically compatible Latin letters, thus reproducing the general
    look of old classical text editions. For this reason Theano fonts currently
    have no additional weights or styles and don't provide extensive Unicode
    coverage: just a standard set of Latin and Greek characters (including
    the full polytonic set) and some additional characters I found interesting
    to design. Nevertheless I decided to make them publicly available in the
    hope they can be useful for other classicists or medievalists.
    
    The package is named after Theano, a famous Ancient Greek woman
    philosopher, who was first a student of Pythagoras, and supposedly became
    his wife. In 1211 or 1212 Michael Choniates, a highly educated Greek
    Metropolitan of Athens, wrote a large poem devoted to Theano. Thus Theano
    seemed a good example of a person joining the ancient and the medieval world.
    Another reason for which I selected her name is that it starts from
    theta, just like Thessalonica -- the name of my keyboard input and conversion
    utility for Ancient Greek.
