TerminusV Variable Width Bitmap Font
TerminusV (Variable Width) & TerminusC (Fixed Width Condensed), both based on the original Terminus font. So far, only iso8859-1 (usually called western) is implemented, and only three rather small sizes (10, 11 and 12 pixels high).

install.sh, it will go through the same steps described above.

additionally, you might want to disable bitmap font scaling (because it's ugly) by deleting any file called
/etc/fonts/conf.d and/or delete
/etc/fonts/conf.d to disable creation of artificial italic/bold fonts.
