Assuming the mark is constitutes a glyph, you could use a <g> element, 
as detailed here:

<http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/ref-g.html>

Another option is <pc>, the punctuation character:

<http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/ref-pc.html>

<pc> can also contain <g>, as in the first example here:

<http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/examples-pc.html>

It's also worth looking at 11.6.2, which talks about a situation similar 
to yours, but is sadly non-committal:

"For example, in the Chaucer example just cited, one may wish to record 
that the nota is written in the Hengwrt manuscript in the right margin 
against a single large left parenthesis bracketing the four lines, with 
two right parentheses in the right margin bracketing two overlapping 
pairs of lines: the first and third, the second and fourth. The note 
element allows us to record that the scribe wrote nota, but is not 
well-adapted to show that the nota points both at all four lines and at 
two pairs of lines within the four lines."

Cheers,
Martin
