Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 296,042 views on Saturday, 27 November 2021 our article of the day is Omicron.

Omicron (; uppercase Ο, lowercase ο, literally 'small o': όμικρον from ὂ μικρόν ò mikrón, micron meaning 'small' in contrast to omega) is the 15th letter of the Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 70. This letter is derived from the Phoenician letter ayin: . In classical Greek, omicron represented the sound [o] in contrast to omega [ɔː] and ου [oː]. In modern Greek, omicron represents the mid back rounded vowel /o̞/ , the same sound as omega. Letters that arose from omicron include Roman O and Cyrillic O.
