I think your hex is confused, John, but:
0x34: thorn: COPTIC LETTER KHEI
0x35: hori with stroke: COPTIC LETTER AKHMIMIC KHEI
0x36: stigma: COPTIC LETTER SOU
0x37: rho with stroke: COPTIC LETTER NINE HUNDRED
I assume that stigma is SOU because stigma and digamma both are used in
Greek for the number 6 and SOU is used in Coptic for the number 6.
