Jacob Thomas worked with Oxford University’s Ugaritic Font Initiative to produce a new pair of fonts for representing Ugaritic cuneiform. Pre-existing fonts covering the Ugaritic Unicode block were insufficient in both character and appearance. The new Oxford Ugaritic fonts are based on primary evidence from Ugaritic tablets and direct experimentations in stylus and clay. The ‘Oxford Ugaritic Clay’ font uses recent advances in chromatic font formats to provide a much more accurate representation of actual Ugaritic epigraphy.
