Greek font: looking for a VERY similar font family

Giorgio Bellante's picture

Dear Typophiles
I need to know whether a font family very similar to that I attached exists (I'd like the design of the letters to be very close to these ones).
I need a font family with polytonic greek.

IMPORTANT: Adobe fonts (like Arno, Minion, Garamond Premier), Times New Roman, Palatino, Baskerville are excluded.

Please help me.

Thanks Jan but GFS Didot doesn’t fit my needs.
The two fonts look sligthly different: check the SMALL LETTER THETA (θ) or the stroke of each letter and their contrast (look at the eyes of «ρ» or «ο»).
GFS Didot belong to an open-source project, while I am likely to pay for those fonts.
Can anyone help me?

Click on the "Magenta Memories Apla UC Pol" for a pdf with samples.

Or, try some fonts from this page:

namely the ones in the categories:

1 Unicode Fonts No 1
2 Unicode No 2 Fonts
3 Unicode No 3 Fonts
4 Unicode No 4 Fonts
5 Unicode No 5 Fonts

Hope some of them fit your needs.

Good luck!

Thanks John.
MgMemoriesApla is very similar to the font I'm looking for, but some differences still remain.

Are there any other type foundries that produce professional fonts with polytonic greek?

Might it be Monotype Greek 90 and 91?

(?) Monotype Greek 90 and Monotype Greek 90 slanted (12 deg)

Many thanks!
Monotype Greek 90 looks very similar!
