ar­chaic – A col­lec­tion of ar­chaic fonts

The col­lec­tion con­tains fonts to rep­re­sent Ara­maic, Cypriot, Etr­uscan, Greek of the 6th and 4th cen­turies BCE, Egyp­tian hi­ero­glyph­ics, Lin­ear A, Lin­ear B, Na­batean old Per­sian, the Phais­tos disc, Phoeni­cian, proto-Semitic, runic, South Ara­bian Ugaritic and Vik­ing scripts.

The bun­dle also in­cludes a small font for use in pho­netic tran­scrip­tion of the ar­chaic writ­ings. The bun­dle's own di­rec­tory in­cludes a font in­stal­la­tion map file for the whole col­lec­tion.
