R, r

The eighteenth letter of the English alphabet, derived from North Semitic, by way of the Greek rho. The form of the uppercase "R" in Latin came from a variant of rho in Greek script, which added the short stroke below the top loop. The lowercse "r" comes from the Roman cursive form of the capital.
