Thanks. I have used quite a few Qur'ans and concordances
in research on Islamic art, and I can affirm that there
is no glyph like this one in Egyptian printed Qur'ans.
However, I suspect that the glyph may not be what the
Egyptian national body originally intended: it looks as
though it stands for a mihrab (a physical place of prayer),
but perhaps what was intended is a spot in a text. That
would make it similar to the (Qur'anic) 06DD and 06DE.
