|Guide to Greek Usage in Cataloging|
The diacritic essential to transcription is the macron (over and underscore). It appears above the Greek letter Ω/ω, Η/η and below the letter combination Ντ (at the beginning of a word). Other diacritical marks, such as the smooth breathing (opposite of the dasia, or rough breathing), the coronis, acute, circumflex and grave accents, and the diaeresis, as well as iota subscript and adscript, are omitted in romanization..
