May be a trill judging from the commentary in the "Ornaments" article
in Grove's and the chart at the end of the article.  But in that
source and in "The New Harvard Dictionary of Music," these paired
lines are described as an English ornament (and in Grove's, Dutch and
northern German) from the late 16th and early 17th century and found
in keyboard music.

Hope this points you in the right direction.
