Ʋ (minuscule: ʋ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, based on an italic form of V. It is used in the orthographies of some African languages such as Ewe, and in Shona from 1931-1955, to write [β]. Its lowercase form, [ʋ], is used in the International Phonetic Alphabet for a labiodental approximant.

Its Unicode code points are U+01B2 and U+028B, respectively.
