And I noticed that á¼™Îºá½±Ï„Î· wasn't on the list, which would put you one up on Cunliffe.
And when I checked Cunliffe just now for á¼™Îºá½±Ï„Î·, to avoid looking stupid, I also noticed some words which aren't on the list, but some of these might just fall under á¼‘Îºá½±Ï‚....

According to Cunliffe, the spelling was influenced by the Digamma.
I am not sure if this is important for the purpose of your list but I mention it in case it is.

Both large and small a digamma should look a lot like 'F'.

That will depend on your keyboard input method/program.
When I mentioned Î´á½¹ÏÏ… Î´Î¿Ï…Ïá½¹Ï‚ Ï„á½¹ I had missed that your list is of words beginningwith digamma.annis wrote:
But please do mention digammatic words to me if they're not on the list. I'm sure there are a few I've missed.
