I expect all the List-folk know perfectly well:  it's just the Latin SEU, with
the V as the usual medieval/Renaissance letter-form standing for what we now
write as U.  Another reason why computers need human caretakers to obviate
their stupidity. And a reason, perhaps, why paleography is not irrelevant for
21st century scholars.
