Another way that comes to mind is to run the command:

M-x set-default-font <ENTER>

Then at the prompt press the tab key a couple of times to see a list of
available fonts.

Don't necessarily pick one but save the buffer of  the fontnames as a
file then press Ctrl-g to get out of the command,  and look thru those
fontnames a bit.
