    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
    <>). 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'.
