Unicode Fonts for Symbols and Ancient Scripts (teilar.gr)

The 3rd font down is Symbola, it contains quite a few Unicode 6.0 symbols not generally available.

All fonts on the page are free for reuse and distribution.

Even though it's really cool to have all these symbols available in fonts, I can't really see a reason for them other than decoration. I mean, no one writes in hieroglyphs do they?

It would be really interesting to hear what people actually do with these glyphs :)

Ancient script fonts are always a treasure. I've never known of a good, comprehensive collection, so I've always had my own little stash that I keep adding to.

These are really great. I especially love the Anaktoria Greek glyphs.
