from the ps.map help page: (near the top)
font font name
The name of the PostScript font. Fonts present in
all PostScript implementations are: Times-Roman,
Times-Italic, Times-Bold, Times-BoldItalic, Hel-
vetica, Helvetica-Oblique, Helvetica-Bold, Hel-
vetica-BoldOblique, Courier, Courier-Oblique,
Courier-Bold, and Courier-BoldOblique.
The default is Helvetica.

fonts known to the system. Maybe there is a way around that but I don't
