The font named Symbol is used on the Microsoft Windows operating system, it contains in particular the letters of the Greek alphabet, used as symbols in physics, mathematics and more generally in science.
The writing / encryption is based on the Symbol font, each ASCII character is associated with a glyph/symbol (which gives the name to the font).
The characters are partially similar to the original message because the Symbol font uses, among other things, Greek letters having inspired the Latin alphabet.
There are many symbol fonts that contain icons, the most famous is wingdings.
The reading / decryption of the Symbol font consists in associating each glyph/symbol the corresponding character in the ASCII table.
Symbol is originally associated with Apple and its LaserWriter printer, but adoption has been popularized by Microsoft who has incorporated it (Symbol.ttf) by default into its Windows operating systems.
