Modern Editorial Character

Indicates "irremediable" corrupt text in codical use (Maas 1958:22).

It is also frequent in papyrological literary texts although Bidez and Drachmann (1938:18) report the crux has not been accepted by papyrologists because of its conflict with the cross (See #556 Ancient Editorial Stauros).
