    Sorry, I made an error to call this symbol logographic. According to Lehmann the angled line on top of this glyph is a varia and the rest is the shorthand kappa.

    See this derivation in Lehmann.

    So it could be called 'shorthand kappa with varia'. It can also be used in the middle of a word like 'dikaios' so it can represents the syllable kai, as does the other kai, encoded as 03D7.
