thank you for your answer. `\overline` works as you say, but it looks
typographically different in the respect that the bar is closer to the
letter, which of course solves the issue for the inline fraction. For α
this looks quite strange in my eyes. But I do not know a lot about

Please find the PDF-output attached with the following ConTeXt version.
