Typeface notes:

Inscriptions honoring public figures or dedications for temples were intended for public viewing in ancient Greece. Geometric letterforms, free of adornment, were chiseled into the stone. These very basic shapes are the inspiration for Lithos, an Adobe Originals typeface designed by Carol Twombly in 1989. Extremely popular since its release, this flexible design combines simplified character shapes with a playful asymmetric quality that works well for a large variety of display jobs.
