    This sign of a bakery in Kato Patissia, Athens appears to use a Greek adaptation of the Jackson typeface. Most of the letterforms in “ΑΡΤΟΠΟΙΪΑ” (“bakery”) are slightly different from the ones found in Mecanorma’s version: proportions are less wide, corners are more rounded, Τ has a curved roof (unlike the Latin T), and Π is different both from N and an upside-down U. At this point of time, it’s not clear to me whether this is custom lettering inspired by Jackson, or whether there is a Greek adaptation in the form of a typeface.
