Depending on your OS (which you don't tell us) you could see the
following help pages...

man unixfonts
man macfonts
man winfonts

These indicate that graphs under *NIX allow any font, Windows they
must be TrueType and there is no "Graph" section under the -man
macfonts- help page.

Generally you can set the font for your graphs under Preferences ->
Graph Preferences, I guess what is listed there depends on what fonts
you have installed on your system (assuming they are somewhere that
Stata will automagically find them).
