Direc­tory tex-archive/fonts/archaic/phoenician

    The phoenician bundle provides Postscript Type1 fonts for the semitic 
script in use from about 1600 BC, and which formed the basis for all the 
world's alphabets. Mirrored forms are provided for typesetting either 
left-to-right or right-to-left (as the Phoenicians did). This is one of a 
series for archaic scripts.
