Evidence for the origins of the Greek Alphabet
 

Phoenicians sea-going traders, and merchants adopting the Greek Alphabet, and introducing it to the Mediterranean countries, giving the impression that the Alphabet was Phoenician, for this responsible was Greek historian Herodotus, confusing «recent Cadmus (=Κάδμος)»  with the older Cadmus, who appeared the same era with Zeus, as we read in the Greek historian Hesiodus in «Theogony» (lines 937,975,978) and in Homer's  (Odyssey E. 299-333-335).

Ι: Is representing fine, slim, narrow, weak objects. The symbol is used often as Y (in English or German) and often as J Ιαπετός (=Japeto) (Japeto was father of Prometheus and Prometheus was father of the genealogic tree of the Greek race).
In sound the letter I+a = Iaaa!!!, Iaaa!!!, or Yaaa!!!, Yaaa!!! is a strong scaring voice to the animals and an expression of sorrow and despair to man. «Ι» also representing the arrow, and the noise it makes when delivered from the bow.
An arrow dipped in poison give the word ιός (=poison), ιατρός (doctor), ΙΣΧΝΟΣ (=lean - thin - ill (wickedness, disease, pain), ιαχή=iahe (=sound of many people, sound of stormy sea), ΙΣΤΟΣ (=the mast of a ship or a supporting POLE), ΙΣΤΟΣ (foundation pile, to secure a dome),  ill, wick etc.
 

The reason that the Greeks created 3 different symbol characters that sound the same «H,I,Y» prove  the originality of the alphabet, each symbol sound the same, but have different meaning.   

Code meaning:
direction, support, retention

Meaningful extensions:
ιός (=poison), fine, slim, narrow, objects, ill, wick.
J = Ια  Ιατρός (=doctor)
