(minuscule: ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from R with the addition of a dot below the letter. It is used in the transliteration of Afro-Asiatic languages to represent an "emphatic r". It is used in transliterating Indo-Aryan and East Iranian languages to represent either syllabic r or a retroflex flap.


In Unicode, the encodings are:

  • U+1E5A latin capital letter r with dot below (HTML Ṛ)
  • U+1E5B latin small letter r with dot below (HTML ṛ)
