+    <p>
+      In 1927, Scholderer, 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. New Hellenic was the only successful
+      typeface in Great Britain after the introduction of Porson Greek well over a
+      century before. The type, since to 1930’s, was also well received in Greece,
+      albeit with a different design for Ksi and Omega.
+      GFS digitized the typeface (1993-1994) funded by the Athens Archeological
+      Society with the addition of a new set of epigraphical symbols. Later (2000)
+      more weights were added (italic, bold and bold italic) as well as a latin
+      version.
