For ancient Greek fonts, see this page. These fonts follow the basic key-mapping of the BibleWorks Hebrew font, with a few exceptions. Since the Masoretic text does not use word dividers, and many ancient Hebrew inscriptions do, the "period" key has been used for the word divider dot, both upper and lower case. Also, since many ancient inscriptions have missing text, the bracket keys (upper case "9" and "0") have been used for brackets so that reconstructed text can be set off from certain text. Each letter appears on the appropriate key both in the lower and upper case. A balance has been sought between using the letter forms most common to a particular inscription and showing the variety of letter forms that appear in it. In some cases this has proven particularly difficult due to the number of letters and shapes employed by an ancient scribe. Letters that do not occur in an inscription have usually been reconstructed in hollow letter form to set them off. If you have questions or suggestions for improving these fonts, you may contact the author at krisudd at gmail.com (replace "at" with @).
