    e.g., .../texmf-local/tex/latex/cypriot
o Move *.afm, *.pfb and *.tfm files to where LaTeX looks for font information
    e.g., .../texmf-var/fonts/afm/public/archaic/*.afm

   If you want the MetaFont version as well:
   o Move the *.mf files to, e.g., .../texmf-var/fonts/source/public/cypriot
   o Add a line like the following to the (texmf/fontname/)special.map file:
     cypr10.mf    public      cypriot 
o Refresh the database
 (for more information on the above see the FAQ).

o run: (pdf)latex trycypriot for a test of the font

    If you want a full manual with all the MetaFont and LaTeX code and commentry, 
comment out the \OnlyDescription line in cypriot.dtx.
o run: (pdf)latex cypriot.dtx
