Masoretic Marking in Deut 1:36

Hi Everyone,

I am doing some research on Deut 1:36 and have noticed an accent that I 
have not seen before.  Halfway through the verse above ya'an there is what 
looks like a zaqeph magnum, except that it is backwards.  Is this simply 
another way of indicating the disjunctive magnum, or is it something different?

Thanks!

Mark

PS.  I also note that the Samaritan Pentateuch has kiy rather than ya'an.
