U+0374 GREEK NUMERAL SIGN
U+0375 GREEK LOWER NUMERAL SIGN
These got renamed and moved for Unicode 1.1 back in 1993.

holamleft and holamright are considered to be glyph variants of the
same basic character: U+05B9 HEBREW POINT HOLAM.
By the way, U+05BA has *never* been a valid, assigned Unicode character.

There are a bunch of approximately equal signs. Without exact specifications

A full collection of mathematical script letters will be available in
Unicode 4.0. But by this description, you are presumably referring to
U+210A SCRIPT SMALL G.

This is presumably U+2127 INVERTED OHM SIGN.
