Various Coptic Abbreviations?

There are some Coptic abbreviations/symbols that are bit known (For example,
¥ _ `<rictoc
¢ _ Marturoc
¡ _ [oic
½ _ `ctauroc
I found some more in the full special character guide for the Coptic fonts. Any idea what they mean? I can guess some, but the rest I am totally lost on.

    @minatasgeel what's the difference between ¾ nem ½?
    also, does £ mean not sure or are you not sure :))
  • Hi @Daniel_Kyrillos,
    £ refers to menenca
    ¾ according to Dr. Kamal Farid it is the same like ½ but with a "Greek-shaped" sima; I do appreciate if anything it looks like a ghamma, but I believe he is absolutely right, as a renowned teacher of the Coptic language.
