If the Wikipedia page(s) are correct, then Unicode isn't.  Unicode charts don't show the glyph on the dotted circle and the canonical combining class is shown as "spacing".  The fact that Doug Ewell found some installed fonts displaying the character as a combining mark suggests that the Wikipedia pages are correct.  This character is listed as being unused in modern Armenian, but you'd think that it would have been exposed before now since the charcter has been in Unicode since version 1.0.
