Summary     : A font based on Victor Julius Scholderer's "New Hellenic"
Description :
Aroania is a modern recast of Victor Scholderer's "New Hellenic" font, on the
basis of Verdana. In 1927, Victor Julius Scholderer (1880-1971), on behalf of
the "Society for the Promotion of Greek Studies", got involved in choosing and
consulting the design and production of a Greek type called "New Hellenic", cut
by the Lanston Monotype Corporation. He chose the revival of a round, and
almost monoline type which had first appeared in 1492 in the edition of
Macrobius, ascribable to the printing shop of Giovanni Rosso (Joannes Rubeus)
in Venice.

The font covers the Windows Glyph List, IPA Extensions, Greek Extended, Ancient
Greek Numbers, Byzantine and Ancient Greek Musical Notation, various
typographic extras and several Open Type features (Case-Sensitive Forms, Small
Capitals, Subscript, Superscript, Numerators, Denominators, Fractions, Old
Style Figures, Historical Forms, Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures).

It was created by George Douros.
