Wikipedia: Dagger (typography)
A dagger, obelisk, or obelus † is a typographical symbol that usually indicates a footnote if an asterisk has already been used. It is one of the modern descendants of the obelus, a mark used historically by scholars as a critical or highlighting indicator in manuscripts. (The term obelisk derives from the Greek: ὀβελίσκος (obeliskos), which means "little obelus"; from ὀβελός (obelos) meaning 'roasting spit').A double dagger or diesis ‡ is a variant with two handles that usually marks a third footnote after the asterisk and dagger.The triple dagger ⹋ is a variant with three handles and is used by medievalists to indicate another level of notation. 🔗 Dagger (typography)
