The auncial bundle provides packages and fonts for a script based on the Artificial Uncial manuscript book-hand used between the 6th & 10th century AD. The script consists of minuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. This is one of a series for bookhand fonts. The font follows the B1 encoding developed for bookhands. Access to this is essential. The encoding mainly follows the regular T1 encoding. If there are any questions please ask them on the comp.text.tex newsgroup.
