In the version of the Sylfaen typeface that I made for MS in 1998, I used a larger version
of the lowercase form. See small attached graphic.
I think the characterisation 'like an OC ligature' is misleading, because the amount of
curvature on the right side of either upper or lowercase is stylistic (this is true of the
lowercase Greek alpha also).
