Or, where is that funny glyph taken from?

A page on Fedora Fonts


Sometimes all the fontconfig substitution and composing magic makes it hard to identify the font files responsible for a mis-rendering. The font family applications typically display is the requested family, not what this request has been resolved to for a particular glyph.

Looking up this glyph in the gucharmap application, using the same font family, is usually sufficient to learn where it's taken from. Gucharmap will display the origin font when you right-click on a glyph[1].
