Two would suffice as U+018E LATIN CAPITAL LETTER REVERSED E is already encoded.
Actually, I noticed the other day that the OED uses an horizontal E
facing upwards, represented by the entity #horizE# (see
<http://dictionary.oed.com/help/advanced/symbols.html>). However, it
transpires that the only usage of this entity in the dictionary is in
the entry for the word "letter" where it is used to represent the
Chinese character 山 in a quote from Joyce !
1927 JOYCE Let. 2 Mar. (1957) I. 250 A Chinese student sent me some
*letterwords I had asked for. The last one is #horizE#. It means
‘mountain' and is called ‘Chin'.
