Ot (Ѿ ѿ) is a letter of the early Cyrillic alphabet, used in Church Slavonic to represent the preposition отъ 'from' and prefix от-. It does not stand for this sequence of letters in any other context, nor can the sequence от be substituted for it where it does occur. It is used with a similar purpose in mediæval manuscripts of other Slavonic languages written in the Cyrillic alphabet. Though it originated as a ligature of the letters Omega and Te, it functions as a discrete letter of the alphabet, placed between х and ц.[1] This can be seen in the first printed Cyrillic abecedarium (illustrated), and continues in modern usage.[2] In printed books ѿ is often used in preference to ѡ҃ for the numeral 800.
