They're not a case pair in Emacs, but they should compare equally under

Somthing that implements this:
http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/CaseFolding.txt

And perhaps more.  I don't know, but someone on this list probably does.

If you look about a third of the way down, there's a line saying that
U+03C2 (ς) should fold into U+03C3 (σ).
