I came across an abbreviation in a text that I'd like to typeset as diplomatically as possible, but I've come across an abbreviation for gens that I'm not entirely sure how it's being abbreviated (regrettably, the quality of the scan isn't very good either). The incunable was published in Spain in the late 15th century and is a biblical commentary.
I've checked in Cappelli's dictionary of abbreviations, but there isn't an G + superscript letter or G + symbol that means gens. Here's the letter in context (and a transcription)
It doesn't like an n (for which I naively would anyways expect g̃), but I feel like it could just as easily be an e or an s over it, that is, gͤ or gᷤ. What could it be? It's used frequently in the text, but the abbreviation mark, be it letter or diacritic, seems to be unique to this word.
