Neohellenic is a Greek font family characterized by round, even pen
strokes. It consists of several weights (normal, italic, bold, and
bold italic) as well as a Latin version.
Former Greek types had harked back to classical models. In 1927,
Victor Scholderer chose instead to revive one which had first
appeared in a 1492 printing of Macrobius attributed to Joannes
Rubeus. In 1993-4 the typeface was digitized by the Greek Font
Society, with the addition of a new set of epigraphic symbols.
