Font designed to be used for Homer's epics

A text typeface using the Greek letters designed by Alexander Wilson (1714-1786), a Scottish doctor, astronomer, and typefounder. The type was especially designed for an edition of Homer’s epics, published in 1756-8 by Andrew and Robert Foulis, printers to the University of Glasgow. A modern revival, Wilson Greek, has been designed by Matthew Carter in 1995. Peter S. Baker is also using Wilson’s Greek type in his Junicode font for medieval scholars (2007). Latin and Cyrillic are based on a Garamond typeface. The font covers the Windows Glyph List, Greek Extended, IPA Extensions, Ancient Greek Numbers, Byzantine and Ancient Greek Musical Notation, various typographic extras and several Open Type features (Case-Sensitive Forms, Small Capitals, Subscript, Superscript, Numerators, Denominators, Fractions, Old Style Figures, Historical Forms, Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures).
