    U+1FCE isn't a combining mark.

    Based on Greek, I would think that <c, U+0313, U+0301> or <g, U+0313,
    U+0301> would give you the diacritic you want, but I haven't heard of
    any side-by-side diacritic positioning rules described for Latin, so it
    may render as an acute _above_ a comma, and I'm sure that isn't what
    you're looking for.
