    Nor can it be implemented using PUA code points, again unless you use
    directional overrides, which defeats any advantage of using the PUA over
    the existing Greek code points with a font change. So, that would be my
    recommended approach: use the Greek code points with directional
    override and choose a font with the required archaic letter shapes.
