[tex-hyphen] Possible error in hyphenation patterns for Ancient Greek.

With "ancientgreek" selected, XeTeX hyphenates :

	Τῆ Εʹ τῆς ΚΑʹ ἑβδο<supplied>μάδος


	Τῆ Ε-ʹ τῆς ΚΑʹ ἑβδο<supplied>μάδος

i.e., between the Ε-majuscule and the number sign "ʹ".  A greek scholar 
tells me this should not occur.  Could the hyphenation team comment, 
please ?
