Letter B is the second letter in the Latin alphabet. It is used to represent a variety of bilabial sounds, most commonly a voiced bilabial plosive. B may have started as a pictogram of the floorplan of a house in Egyptian hieroglyphs. By 1050 BC, the Phoenician alphabet's letter had a linear form that served as the beth. The modern lowercase "b" derives from later Roman times, when scribes began omitting the upper loop of the capital.
