Wrong symbol for MATHEMATICAL SANS-SERIF BOLD ITALIC CAPITAL RHO
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rho#Mathematical_Rho There is a capital theta in the middle of rhos.
Well, I changed that...
ρ or ϱ
When ρ, when ϱ? --Abdull 14:31, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Breathings over internal rho
"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)
Isn't rho also the symbol for momentum in physics?
Nope, that's just p
Move + histmerge
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
- 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: . See commons:Category:Greek epigraphic Rho for more variants. Fut.Perf. ☼ 15:52, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
