Ȥ (minuscule: ȥ, Unicode codepoints U+0224 and U+0225, respectively), a Latin letter Z with a hook.

The Unicode standard notes "Middle High German" for the application of the grapheme, intended to represent the coronal fricative s also transcribed as tailed z (ʒ). It is used for printing Medieval German literature, mainly to distinguish written z pronounced as s (ȥ, modern German: s) from z pronounced as ts (z, modern German: z), and from s where the manuscripts write s.
