Judging by the Strabo narrative, the dedication by Alexander the Great of the new temple for Athena Polias in Priene is a rather interesting story.
The first releases of Tituli Anatolian Project finally revealed: Polias and Polias Varia. While Polias has 8 static weight options, Polias Varia, literally, is a variable font.
This project can be considered as a workshop on some parts of a very comprehensive whole, determined by aesthetic criteria from the perspective of typography.
All kinds of them are live here already, spread over a wide geography. The inscriptions. History on the rocks (pun intended).
Typeface design is a multidisciplinary field that is both inclusive and multi-layered. Research is an integral part of the process, and in all these aspects it is close to the field of Archeology. Take this as a metaphor if you wish.
