GLAGOLITIC SMALL LETTER I

[U+2C3A]
Glagolitic
[U+2C3C]

Translingual[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Source unknown, probably combination of Christian symbols circle and triangle. The inclusion in Glagolitic of the letters , and with the same phonetic value was probably intended to imitate Byzantine Greek orthography where both η (eta) and ι (iota) were pronounced as /i/; it is possible that in the oldest texts rendered the i that alernated with tense ь.
