The Syriac in Greek script shown in
(which the fr.wiktionary.org articles are citing) has underlined chi
and underlined sigma, not chi macron below or sigma macron below.
See page 48: “For characters not found in the Greek alphabet,
underlining is employed: the he is represented by underlined ch, and
shin by underlined sigma.”
Given what was mentioned so far here, one might assume this could be a
macron below with a specific positioning instead of underline, but
that would be just that: assumptions.

It would be interesting the see original documents to have a better
idea of what these should look like.
