Not to be confused with palochka.

Long i, , transcribes a long i-vowel /iː/ in Latin. It stands in for the apex used on other the long vowels: á é ó v́ /aː eː oː uː/. An example is lv́ci·a·fili, which in modern rendition would be lūciī a filiī, with a macron rather than apex to indicate vowel length.
