The FontName for font "Font" now follows > the scheme Archaic-Font. i've installed the lot (whew!), and am updating the catalogue for every font in the entire bundle (since they used to refer to archaic/asample.ps...) thanks for the uploads.

archaic – A collection of archaic fonts
The collection contains fonts to represent Aramaic, Cypriot, Etruscan, Greek of the 6th and 4th centuries BCE, Egyptian hieroglyphics, Linear A, Linear B, Nabatean old Persian, the Phaistos disc, Phoenician, proto-Semitic, runic, South Arabian Ugaritic and Viking scripts.
The bundle also includes a small font for use in phonetic transcription of the archaic writings. The bundle's own directory includes a font installation map file for the whole collection.
