Having found a nice vector graphics for magic symbols, I wonder what the symbols on the second-to-last row are:

Magic symbols

I recognize tap, untap, infinite and half, and the last one as the earlier white, but what are the others?

I voted to close this question because the link appears to be dead, and the question makes no sense without it. – murgatroid99 Dec 12 '15 at 21:06

@murgatroid99 I found a working link (looks like it matches the full list in ikegami's answer) and added a copy of the image. – Jefromi Dec 12 '15 at 21:38

They are old versions of the tap symbol.

As it is explained in this article posted on Daily MTG, the symbol with the T is the tap symbol from Revised through Fallen Empires and the one with the rectangle is the tap symbol from 4th Edition through Scourge.

The article includes an image with old versions of Royal Assassin making it pretty intuitive that they're tap symbols:
