    Good evening folks, I'm looking for a Latin/Greek looking font for a latin phrase that i will be cutting. I was thinking about something where the U looks more like a V and I didn't want to just substitute a V for a U. The phrase is "ubi dubium, ibi libertas" it means "where there is doubt, there is freedom" it really fits me where I am at this point in life. I hope someone can help and if so thank you.

    Trajan or Goudy Trajan ... were modeled off of the lettering carved in the Trajan Steps in Rome, but neither substitutes a V for the U.
