      Greetings everyone,

      Rylands Persian MS 27, a Bahāristān of Jāmī once held in the Mughal library bears this unsual marking on folio 1b, adjacent to the header. Have any of you encountered such a marking previously? I wonder if it might possibly be some sort of stylized, undotted Yā Kabīkaj formula? What do you think?
