Didot indicates a broad general style of Greek typeface, rather than a
particular face.  Both the GFS font and the example of Greek you posted
are in this general style (so too is the standard Greek font for TeX,
originally devised by Levi, though it's a much more high-contrast
version and so looks even more different).  Perhaps I didn't understand
your question -- if so, could you be more specific?
