The editor of the this linguistic lexicon has simply
(manually ?) reversed the capital C to make it look like an
antisigma, has put back to back a reversed capital C and a C
to form the « sigmas adossés » and turned upside down a
capital F for the « digamma inversum ». There are no special
glyphs used otherwise (and besides I don't have a scanner at

Nick Nicholas has answered very satisfactorily as far as the
frequency of the antisigma and the probable ones of
Claudius' inventions.

Unicode 3.0 could legitimately be annoted as being any of
these three characters.
