rough breathing

I must confess to some curiosity. To what 1967 lexicon do you refer that
prints ARR- with this combination of diacritics? BAG (1st ed) was 1957 and
it does not do so, nor does the 1965 abridgement by Gingrich. The 1968
supplement to L&S doesn't use this convention. I'm hard pressed to think of
any other lexicons published in the 60s. Are we talking about a reprint ed.
of an older lexicon? (Thayer does not do this either.)
