Aleph Letter

Aleph (or Alef or Álefe, transliterated ʾ) is the first letter of the Semitic abjads, including Phoenician ʾālep

These letters are believed to have derived from an Egyptian hieroglyph depicting an ox's head.[1] The Phoenician variant gave rise to the Greek alpha (Α), being re-interpreted to express not the glottal consonant but the accompanying vowel, and hence the Latin A and Cyrillic А.
