丷田大京 rare character, please help!


Recommended Posts

Dear crowd intelligence, please help me. I have encountered a character I can't find anywhere on zdic, baike or guhanydacidian and also not with zisea or ciyang. 

The left part consists out of 丷田大   so two dots on top, than the field, then 大below it. The right part is a 京.


Has anyone ever encountred that sign? It's from a Vietnamese stele so it's probably a variant.

Yup, 大 <-> 火 is a pretty common corruption (黑 is an example that went in the opposite direction).


I see the 魚 component written that way pretty frequently at sushi restaurants here in Tokyo (incidentally, I typed the variant but the forums won't allow that code point).
