The letter “R”
This is how we write it now.
But, do you know how it was written even before now?
This is how it was written in Hieroglyph.
It was a picture of a head. The Egyptians called a head "r
This is how it was written in Proto-Sinaitic
This is how it was written in Phoenician.
This is how it was written in Aramaic.
This is how it was written in Greek/Italic
After a while, it became like this.
After a long, long journey, it became our letter R!
We also have a small r now too.
