THE ROMANS GAVE THE LETTER ITS PRESENT SHAPE. JOHN PURCEU- SYOSSET, NY time it did not look like an ox head at all. The early Greeks borrowed the old ox-head letter and used it for the first letter in their alphabet, too. They named it "alpha." The Greek alphabet was later copied by the Romans. They changed the alpha letter to look like the capital "A" we use today. Most of the letters in our alphabet are the same as those the Romans used in their alphabet. Many other letters in our alphabet started with pictures the same way "A" did.

Long ago, the makers of ihe first alphabet borrowed the picture from the ancient Egyptian writing called hieroglyphic, they made it the first letter in their alphabet and called it "aleph," meaning "ox." And when they wrote the letter, they made it look like the head of an ox. As a letter, the ox-head picture was not always drawn the same way. It changed in shape over the centuries.
