According to this post, the 20 sides are the first 20 letters of the
Greek/Coptic alphabet, with a stylized form of alpha (where the crossbar is
a V) and lunate sigma (which looks like C instead of Σ).
Lunate sigma is U+03F9 (uppercase) and U+03F2 (lowercase).
So yes, all 20 symbols are known and encoded.
