New Greek Font: Renaissance Greek with Ligatures

Renaissance Greek with Ligatures (or, for short, RGreekL2) is a font that will allow anyone easily to write Greek in the style of the Renaissance. For example, an editor of Greek texts may use it to reproduce a ligatured word in the manuscript that could be interpreted in different ways. Since the first printers adopted this style of writing for their type, the font can also be used to represent, say, an incunabulum. Many ligatures and abbreviations remained in use up until the eighteenth century.

Does not appear to work with Macs, however.
