Letterlike Symbols

In the Unicode Standard v. 5.1, this range has 80 characters. Here, eight characters have been selected. Additional or alternative forms for several of these characters are found in the Private Use Area below.

Glyph EntityNumericCodepoint ChartDescriptionVersion Andron
2108&scruple;℈2108LettSymbSCRUPLEUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
2114&lbbar;℔2114LettSymbL B BAR SYMBOLUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
Used as an abbreviation for the weight unity ‘pound’. For variants, see section 7 Symbols below.
211E&Rtailstrok;℞211ELettSymbPRESCRIPTION TAKEUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
The Unicode descriptive name should rather have been RECIPE (i.e. ‘take!’). Suggested MUFI name: LATIN CAPITAL LETTER R WITH TAIL STROKE. The tail stroke should not be drawn so that it looks like an ‘x’ added to a capital ‘R’.
211F&Rslstrok;℟211FLettSymbRESPONSEUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
It is questionable whether 211E PRESCRIPTION TAKE and 211F RESPONSE should be recognised as different characters, but since they in fact appear as different characters in the Unicode Standard, we recommend that both should be included in MUFI-compatible fonts.
2123&Vslstrok;℣2123LettSymbVERSICLEUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
For design reasons, A75E LATIN CAPITAL LETTER V WITH DIAGONAL STROKE and 2123 VERSICLE have identical glyphs in the font used here, Andron Scriptor Web. In other fonts and in the Unicode Standard, they are drawn differently. For example, in Cardo, the versicle has a horisontal top stroke, ‘℣’.
2125&ounce;℥2125LettSymbOUNCE SIGNUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
This character is similar to, but not identical with, the scudi sign, cf. subrange 12 in the Private Use Area below (p. 116 below). Attested in Medieval Nordic sources for ‘uns’, cf. Mål og vekt (Nordisk Kultur vol. 30), Oslo–Stockholm–København 1933, p. 283.
2132&Fturn;Ⅎ2132LettSymbTURNED CAPITAL FUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
This pair of characters is used for one of the Claudian letters in Latin epigraphy. Note that the small form is a turned small capital ‘F’ rather than a turned minuscule ‘f’. TURNED SMALL F at 214E was added in the Unicode Standard v. 5.0 for reasons of case pairing.
214E&fturn;ⅎ214ELettSymbTURNED SMALL FUni.: 5.1
MUFI: 3.0
This pair of characters is used for one of the Claudian letters in Latin epigraphy. Note that the small form is a turned small capital ‘F’ rather than a turned minuscule ‘f’. TURNED SMALL F at 214E was added in the Unicode Standard v. 5.0 for reasons of case pairing. For additional Claudian letters, see the two reversed ‘C’ characters at 2183 and 2184 inNumber forms (below) and the two half ‘H’ characters at 2C75 and 2C76 in Latin Extended-C (p. 71 below).
