O-hook (Ҩ ҩ; italics: Ҩ ҩ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. In the Unicode text-encoding standard, this letter is called "Abkhasian Ha".[1] Its form bears some similarities to the Greek letter Theta (Θ θ/ϑ). In English, O-hook is commonly romanized using the Latin letter O dot below (Ọ ọ).

O-hook is used in the alphabet of the Abkhaz language where it represents the labial-palatal approximant /ɥ/, the sound of u in French "huit". It is placed between O and Π in the alphabet.
