Wrong symbol for MATHEMATICAL SANS-SERIF BOLD ITALIC CAPITAL RHO[edit] There is a capital theta in the middle of rhos.

Well, I changed that...

ρ or ϱ[edit]

When ρ, when ϱ? --Abdull 14:31, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Breathings over internal rho[edit]

"a double rho within a word is written with a smooth breathing over the first rho and a rough breathing over the second — ῤῥ"

In my own reading of ancient Greek texts I've never seen breathings over rhos within a word, e.g. ἔρραψα (Hdt. 9.17), nor have ever heard of such a convention. I don't want to remove it, if it actually holds for medieval manuscripts or something, but I'm dubious. Dd42 (talk) 23:14, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Latex \Rho[edit]

In Latex, there is no \Rho. Also, I fixed the symbols to correspond with the actual Latex output —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:47, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Plastic Number[edit]

Shouldn't the article have something about the letter's relation to the plastic number? Skittlesrgood4uTalk Page/Contributions/Sandbox 22:55, 6 March 2008 (UTC)


We need an IPA pronunciation for this... Corovan (talk) 10:17, 28 November 2008 (UTC)


Isn't rho also the symbol for momentum in physics?

Nope, that's just p (talk) 10:46, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

No he's right, it is rho and should be added to the list. My Uni text book says so — Preceding unsigned comment added by HobbsO (talkcontribs) 12:34, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Move + histmerge[edit]

Up to 2004-05-08, the page at Rho was the page about the letter. It was cut-and-paste-moved to Rho (letter), and Rho was turned into a disambiguation page. I have now divided and re-merged the edit histories, moving the history of the disambiguation page to Rho (disambiguation), and merging the more recent history of Rho (letter) back into Rho, per WP:PRIMARYTOPIC.

R shaped Rho[edit]

The image on the page has a rho which looks the latin R. Is there a glyph for this?Naraht (talk) 15:38, 5 April 2017 (UTC)

By "glyph", do you mean a separate Unicode codepoint? No, there isn't. What we do have here on Wikipedia, for purposes of articles like Archaic Greek alphabets, is a set of svg image files for all sorts of epigraphic letter shapes, which you can embed in text if you need them, like this: Greek Rho pointed-tack.svg. See commons:Category:Greek epigraphic Rho for more variants. Fut.Perf. 15:52, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
