The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

Lugal (Sumerian: π’ˆ—) is the Sumerian term for "king, ruler". Literally, the term means "big man." In Sumerian, lu "𒇽" is "man" and gal "𒃲" is "great," or "big."

It was one of several Sumerian titles that a ruler of a city-state could bear (alongside en and ensi, the exact difference being a subject of debate). The sign eventually became the predominant logograph for "King" in general. In the Sumerian language, lugal is used to mean an owner (e.g. of a boat or a field) or a head (of a unit such as a family).

As a cuneiform logograph (Sumerogram) LUGAL (Unicode: π’ˆ—, rendered in Neo Assyrian).
