Gamma (uppercase Γ, lowercase γ; Greek: Γάμμα Gámma) is the third letter of the Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 3. In Ancient Greek, gamma represented a voiced velar stop /ɡ/. In Modern Greek, it represents a voiced fricative.

Based on its phonetic value in Modern Greek, gamma has also been introduced in a number of modern Latin-alphabet based phonetic notations (Latin (or latinized) gamma Ɣ).
