Philocalus is a type design inspired by inscriptions of the fourth century scribe, Furious Dionysius Filocalus, who carved Pope Damasus' epitaphs for the early Christian martyrs. It is distinguished by the wide letter proportions and distinctive bifurcated serifs. The font, consisting of caps and small caps, was designed by Garrett Boge in 1997.
(Philocalus comes bundled with the Early Christian Set, along with Catacomb™ and Sabina™.)
