Where did the letter R come from?

The letter R was firstly originated from the Phoenician letter rosh. Rosh word meant that the letter looks like a head and neck. The form of R is similar to a shape of backwards P. Yes, we are talking about the uppercase of P and R.  When Greek used the letter R, they flipped the rosh 180 degrees and put the short leg to the side. However, the name of the letter changed. They name this letter rho instead. Therefore, we see the R shape like in the letter R template as it is now.

When was the letter R invented?


The additional stroke of R can be found in the 3rd century. This kind of latin alphabet found in the Tomb of the Scipios sarcophagus inscription of that era. This diagonal stroke was improved as a shape of the graphic variant in some Western Greek alphabet. The oldest Latin alphabet was found in the 7th to the 6th BC. The discovery is in the Duenos and Forum inscription. In the inscription, they still wrote r by using the "p" shape of the letter. Approximately, in the 50 AD, it is common to write P with a whole closed loop. The researchers assume that the P was firstly taken by R.
