I need a little help deciphering a document. There are two characters that I'm unsure about, and I would appreciate your expertise. The first one seems to be 鵬, with the 朋 written together, but I'm not entirely certain. The second character is a bit trickier. I've searched through several dictionaries, but I couldn't find an exact match. The closest I found was 逆 or 溯.

If any of you have any insights or suggestions, I would be grateful for your assistance. Thank you in advance for your help!

They are both from this page, from a local gazetteer:

according to 教育部異體字字典, the first one is a variant of “鵬”:

the second one “氵”+“屰”, maybe it’s not chinese, a cjkv compatible character?

重脩永春州志序

樂山草木・四序皆春・鵬嶽樓臺・萬家環翠

溯戴雲之孕毓・青隨天馬西來

展大羽之屏藩・秀引雙魚東障

well, i would read this “un-unicoded” character as “溯”, roughly as “recall” (「溯」表示往前推想、回想)

mainly, 鵬嶽 —> 大鵬山, 戴雲 (山), 天馬 (山), 大羽 (峰) & 雙魚 (山); all are place name in 永春州

have fun :)
