Try "-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" first, and if that works, try
"-*-terminus-medium-*-*-*-20-*-*-*-*-*-*-*", the more wildcards, the
more fonts X will match that provide suitable glyphs.

You can also ; separate several to create a font line that covers
those glyphs you are after from different fonts, in case your existing
font only claims to support many glyphs but doesn't in truth (or only
with different size/options etc).
