    ΑΠΟΡΗΤΑ (APORITA, “confidential”) was a shortlived column in Ταχυδρόμος magazine (Tahidromos, “postman”) that circulated from 1954 to 2003. The title of the column is set in a Greek adaptation of Data 70 and it is repeated along the page. All glyphs correspond to Latin caps, with the exception of Π (Pi): It’s narrower than Data 70’s N and has thickened strokes on both stems.

    The magazine showcases a large variety of typefaces, including a Greek version of Futura in a range of styles for the cover, and what looks like Helvetica Condensed for text.
