I don't get why the left quotation mark doesn't show here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{GFSDidot_Classic.otf}

\begin{document}

`ἄνθρωπος'

\end{document}

I've checked that U+2018 is present in the font. enter image description here

    The problem is imho that U÷60 (the input) is not in the font and so luatex won't do the substitution with U÷2018. Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 22:29
  • I get this picture (click here) with the left quote (XeLaTeX). The quote is missing with LuaLaTeX. Use instead of the back quote.

  • @egreg, I prefer to use `. I'll try to put something into U+60.
