Only two characters have been selected from this range, which contains 134 characters in the Unicode Standard v. 5.1. Coptic has been disambiguated from Greek and given a separate range in the Unicode Standard, 2C80–2CFF. However, the old range, 0370–03FF, has retained its name ‘Greek and Coptic’. Although not a part of the Latin alphabet, Greek characters are often found in bibliographic or text critical usage among Medievalists, e.g. in quoted text, in manuscript sigla (e.g. Copenhagen, Arnamagnæan Collection, AM 243 b α fol, ‘The King’s Mirror’) or in stemmatic recensions (for hyparchetypes or lost manuscripts). We therefore recommend that MUFI-compatible fonts should include the whole range of Greek characters.
