There are two, similar, ligatures used in Ancient Greek educational/reference materials.
They look something like a percent sign.
The first is composed of: a smaller raised epsilon + slash + smaller omicron.
The second is composed of: a smaller raised eta + slash + smaller omega.
For your reference, these are used attached to the root of a verb, to indicate
a particular kind of verb conjugation. They would only appear in a reference
environment, and never in normal running Ancient Greek text.
I believe the best -- and shockingly also correct -- way to deal with these
ligatures is by placing a CGJ between the first letter and the slash, and
another CGJ between the slash and the second letter. A smart font swaps in a
Will this work technically?
Is this in accordance with the officially-defined use of CGJ?
Is there any disrecommendation and/or taboo on the actual use of CGJ in this
type of context?
