The tresillo

Tresillo (capital: , small: ; Spanish for "little three") is a letter of several colonial Mayan alphabets in the Latin script that is based on the digit 3. It was invented by a Franciscan friar, Alonso de la Parra, in the 16th century to represent the uvular ejective consonant // found in Mayan languages, and is known as one of the Parra letters. In cursive form, the tresillo is often written c ̑.
