Translingual[edit]

Letter[edit]

ΐ (ḯ; lower case, no upper-case form)

  1. (Modern Greek) a iota with a dialytika and a tonos
  2. (Ancient Greek) a iota with a diaeresis and an oxia

Usage notes[edit]

  • Unicode treats these two similar Greek letters as canonically equivalent; consequently, the Modern Greek iota with dialytika-tonos will normally be displayed, unless the display of the Ancient Greek iota with diaeresis-oxia is forced instead (such as by employing the HTML NCR ΐ).
