This font is only old style non-lining numerals. It was only intended to be used as reference and cloned by anyone who can't be bothered making their own numerals (a disposition that I can relate to). If you're wondering, the few letters are only there to spell out the title of this font, and they look awful because they are all deformed numbers.

Syzygy was an attempt to create a typeface of old style characters with a high contrast between thicks & thins and attractive curves, despite the inherent limitations of fonstruct’s available blocks. The end result is a highly readable typeface — even at smaller sizes — comprised entirely of straight lines. While the astronomical definition talks about alignment, the word “syzygy” more broadly means “the union of disparate or opposing object, ideas or concepts”. Thus, the name “syzygy” is meant to reference the merger between old-style letters and a modern, computer-driven design tool — truly a meeting of opposites.
