There is one at [1]. In LilyPond, it might be called 
accidentals.sharp.slash.stem. It is a diminished limma, lowered by a syntonic 
comma 81/80.

You might rewrite this file to refer to E53 as it properly should be, if Graham 
Breed’s regular.ly file is incorporated into LilyPond, using my regularE53.ly 
as a template, cf. thread “microtonal accidentals” on the development list.

The Turkish AEU (Arel-Ezgi-Uzdilek) system [2] uses the Pythagorean tuning, 
only having the microtonal accidental accidentals.sharp.slashslashslash.stem 
instead of accidentals.sharp.
