Etymology[edit]

Created by the Roman Emperor Claudius.

Symbol[edit]

  1. Used to represent the so called sonus medius, a short vowel sound between U and I before labial consonants in Latin words such as optumus and optimus, later used as a variant of y in inscriptions for Greek upsilon (as in Olympicus), possibly inspired by an early form of the spiritus asper.
