    Of course, one should avoid mixing up different scripts in the same
    orthography. So, I'd suggest:

            - aɛbbuḍ ("epsilon"): Ɛ U+0190 (LATIN CAPITAL LETTER OPEN E), ɛ

            - aɣrum ("gamma"): Ɣ U+0194 (LATIN CAPITAL LETTER GAMMA), ɣ U+0263

    The only dubious case in the table is uppercase aɣrum, which could have the
    Greek shape. But it's unlikely.
