GFSDidot – A Greek font based on Didot’s work

The design of Didot’s 1805 Greek typeface was influenced by the neoclassical ideals of the late 18th century. The font was brought to Greece at the time of the 1821 Greek Revolution, by Didot’s son, and was very widely used. The present version is provided by the Greek Font Society.

The font supports the Greek alphabet, and is accompanied by a matching Latin alphabet based on Zapf’s Palatino. support is provided, using the OT1, T1, TS1, and LGR encodings.
