Maiola supports polytonic Greek

Veronika Burian's multi-award winning type family Maiola has grown even bigger. Its Pan-European OpenType Pro version now supports, in addition to Cyrillic and Latin A, full polytonic Greek. The calligraphic details of Maiola collaborate gracefully with each of the three scripts and generate a sense of consistent personality that creates a welcoming tension on the page. The polytonic extension was done by Greek specialist Irene Vlachou.

Nice how the diamond tittles fit with the tonos in the dieresistonos mark.
The same ductus works well for marks combining the inverted breve form of perispomeni (rather than the tilde variant) over a breathing mark.
All very neat. Respect!
