New Athena Unicode is a freeware multilingual font distributed by the American Philological Association. It follows the Unicode standard (version 6/7) and includes characters for English and Western European languages, polytonic Greek, Coptic, Old Italic, and Demotic Egyptian transliteration (and Arabic transliteration), as well as metrical symbols and other characters used by classical scholars and some required by medievalists and Byzantinists. New Athena Unicode is a “smart font” that includes OpenType ligatures allowing the display of precomposed combined characters not recognized by Unicode but needed by scholars (for more information see the page on technical details).
