System terminal font...which font is it?

When I look at my gnome-terminal profile the option to use System Terminal Font is selected. Anybody knows which font it's actually using there? I'd love to be able to use that font in Aterm instead of using slow a$$ gnome-terminal

I would like to know myself. When I installed a new kernel I noticed it uses a slightly different font.

Try different fonts in aterm to see what you like best. To scroll throught the available fonts on your system
 xlsfonts | less
My aterm command line
aterm +sb -sl 4000 -tr -sh 50% -bg black -fg white -fn 9x15
