See (in the definition of "ABARIM") :
And its discussion page (in French) :
In this page (and others in the same book) the Greek ligature/letter
is present alone, or with a Greek circonflex
above (Latin tilde).
Currently the Greek ligature "omicron+upsilon above" is encoded (in
the page view) as Latin letter "ou" (U+0222
capital / U+0223 small), and corrected (in the full text view) using
non-ligatured omicron+upsilon (but it's
impossible to say if this introduced a distinction in the Polytonic
Greek language at this epoch, so it's not clear that it's
really a ligature or a plain letter).
Clearly there does seem to be missing a Greek letter, which should
behave exactly like the Latin letter. I can't say
if this is a contamination of the Greek script by the Latin script
(the book itself is in French), or if finally the
ligature was also used in Greek books. I think that such famous
authors were knowing Greek enough to have seen the
ligature used in pure Greek alone.
