Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a Greek font I wrote in METAFONT several years ago after being 
inspired by the Bodoni typefaces I had seen in the old books in my school 
library. It is stylistically a little more exotic than the standard 
textbook greek  fonts, particularly in glyphs like the lowercase rho and 
kappa. It aims for a rather calligraphic feel, but I also think it blends 
well with Computer Modern.

I included a ligature scheme which automatically inserts the breathings 
required for ancient texts, making the input text more readable than in some 
schemes. Since it is now de rigueur to use outline fonts, I have largely 
abandoned this project, but I hope someone finds it useful.
