Greek diacritics

Sho (Ϸ) was a letter added to the Greek alphabet in order to write the Bactrian language[1]. It probably represented a sound similar to English "sh" (IPA: /ʃ/). The name "sho" is modern; its Bactrian name is unknown, as is its order in the Bactrian alphabet.

It is similar in appearance to the Anglo-Saxon and Icelandic "þ" (pronounced as "thorn"), though this letter is derived from the runic alphabets used by Germanic Languages prior to their adoption of the Latin Alphabet, not from the Bactrian.

Computer encoding

Sho was added to Unicode in version 4.0 (2003), in an uppercase and lowercase character designed for modern typography.
