Thanks, Aylwen
This looks like it in Porson Greek a TT font on my VISTA machine. However its properties indicate it is a Monotype font for OUP (I have NSOED on board) so I don't know how you would access it. Maybe the Character code 0x21 would locate it in other, say Unicode, fonts?

Doing a Google on [Greek symbol "nu"] leads me diffidently to ask about the "hat"/circonflex since the examples in WIKI and in the HTML code document don't show one by only an italic v

In which case Microsoft's Verdana has it, as shown in the second image, when you select Windows Greek as the character set.

Hope that helps.
