Greek Alphabet The letters in the Greek alphabet presented below are used for printed Ancient Greek texts. The earliest Greek texts that have survived were written with a radically different script called Linear B.

You can find fonts for displaying or writing Greek text as well as utilities for converting older fonts to the new Unicode standarde on our fonts page.

New Testament Greek Textkit | Greek and Latin Learning Tools Ancient Greek Tutorials @ Ancient Greece - History, mythology, art, war, culture, society, and architecture. Greek New Testament - Parallel Greek New Testament by John Hurt Eton College - The Eton Greek Project The Eton classics department has commissioned software to help with the learning of Greek vocabulary and grammar, making use of the new Oxford Greek Grammar by James Morwood. Oxford University Press has collaborated in this enterprise, and the Provost and Fellows of Eton College have made the programs available on the internet as a free service in accord with the college’s aims as a charitable organisation. The Reading Greek parts of the project have been developed in association with the Department of Classical Studies at the Open University. The software, which is designed by Tony Smith, is in self-contained and manageable stages. Note: Some of the testers will only run properly if you have Java enabled in your browser. Please click on the links below for the testers and the word list. The developers of the project would welcome your comments or suggestions.
