In some cases we can have one letter directly on top of another, as a manuscript variant, rather than a correction. There is no adequate TEI guidance for this phenomenon, so for the moment we have used another value of the rend attribute, 'stacked'. Here is an example from the second volume of Fragmenta Historicorum Graecorum. This is an encoding of an edition (presumably referencing a manuscript), not stacked letters in an inscription/papyrus, and the interpretation of this stacking is rather unclear, so we will only tag the appearance of the edition:

Κάδμο<hi rend="stacked">ο</hi>ν
