F, f, fi` , tov , indecl., twenty-first letter of the Gr. alphabet: as a numeral fV = 500, but Ëf = 500,000. The consonant F arose from the labial P followed by the aspirate, and was anciently written PH .

I. changes of F :
1. in Aeol., Dor. and Ion. the aspirate was often dropped, and f became p , as in ajspavrago" spovggo" spurav" for ajsfavrago" sfovggo" sfurav" , whereas the Att. sometimes used f for p , as fanov" favtra for panov" pavtra .

2. in Aeol., Dor., and Ion. f is sometimes put for q , as fhvr flavw for qhvr qlavw .
II. older Poets sometimes treated f as a double consonant, so that a short vowel before it becomes long by position, as in o[fi", Zefuvrio" quasi o[pfi", Zepfuvrio" .
