But the lantern symbol never existed on the VT220.

Actually, in my experience most terminal fonts that try to support the
ACS characters beyond the line-drawing characters will map the lantern
symbol to the VT symbol (U+240B), which is the 11th symbol down on the
leftmost column. Presumably this is because the those terminals are
specifically emulating the VT220.
