A font based on elements created by Demetrios Damilas (late 15th c.)
The first edition of Isocrates, edited by Demetrius Chalcondyles, was published by Uldericus Scinzenzeler & Sebastianus de Ponte Tremolo, in 1493 in Milan. It was set in letters cut in 1481 by Bonus Accursius, copying the older elements of Demetrius Damilas. A digital revival was prepared by Ralph P. Hancock for his Milan (Mediolanum) font in 2000.
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.

There is a character repertoire preview of Avdira (and the other TextFonts fonts) at the project's homepage .
