An example of multiple usage of letter-titlos in a Russian manuscript, c. 1400

It is a modification of titlo adapted for covering (hence its name, Russian for 'covering') combining Cyrillic letters (so called letter-titlos). It is conventionally not used with combining modifications of letters Д, Ж, З and Х, although exceptions happen, especially in skoropis′.

The character was introduced into Unicode 5.1 in April 2008.
