I am working with a text from the 1500s. The typeset that is use has a 
glyph for a trope that I can not identify.
Hopefully someone on the forum her can identify it for me. I have 
included two scanned images with the glyphs in questioned circled.

As you can see it is frequently used.

Thanks in advance.
