U+018E has a misleading Unicode name "LATIN CAPITAL LETTER REVERSED E", but it's lowercase U+01DD is named "LATIN SMALL LETTER TURNED E". Historically this letter has always been printed by turned the letter e.
The uppercase U+018E should be a turned capital E (rotated 180 degrees), not a reversed one (mirrored horizontally).

In the Unicode chart http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0180.pdf there is actually a note under U+018E: = turned e.

The sample glyph in the chart itself looks like a reversed capital E (mirrored horizontally), but in http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U1D00.pdf the U+1D32 MODIFIER LETTER CAPITAL REVERSED E, it's superscript modifier, looks like a proper turned capital E.
