Well, it does also exist in the Codex Taurinensis
as indicated on: 
and even though I have not seen any other 
examples, it is defined as the 'old style'
Aries symbol, the 'new style' having just the
V without the horizontal bar. (Would be nice
to have more information about these styles,
but I have not found any).

So I agree with John, that seeing it as an
apparent paragraph marker is a significant point.
