    How about looking it up in the standard, which has representative
    glyphs for all defined codepoints in numeric order? Either the paper
    copy or the PDFs available at

    While the charts are listed by name on that page, if you hover over
    the link the actual files are named by the initial codepoint of the
    block, so you can look in your browser's status bar.

    Or am I missing something in your question?
