GothicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Uncertain. Possibly from Runic ᚒ, though SnΓ¦dal (2015; see references) considers this unlikely, interpreting it as being derived from an allograph of Ancient Greek Ο (O, β€œomikron”); compare also the numerical values.

LetterEdit

𐌿 β€’ (u)

  1. The sixteenth letter of the Gothic alphabet, representing /u/, with a numerical value of 70.
