GFS Pyrsos italic Greek fonts


This typeface first appeared in the late 20s and was used as an alternative italic type to the most commonly used Greek italics at the time, coming from Germany (Leipsig). The name commemorates the edition of the Greek encyclopædia Pyrsos (1927-1933) from which the types were taken.

The font was digitally designed by George D. Matthiopoulos and is freely available by GFS.
