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).

Η: In sound is the same as (H, I, Y) but it differs in image, example the symbol Y represents the cup to carry water, and letter I is representing fine, slim, narrow objects.

According to Plato, letter H (etta) is considered as majestic, words Ήλιος = Helios (=sun), Ήρα (=Goddess  Hera), Ηρακλής (=Hercules). In many ancient Greek dialects Η (etta) has replaced letters A and E (αμέρα to ημέρα (day), (ήβη to ήβα and άβα = adolescence), (ηχή to αχά (=sound of many voices). H (=etta) is also the feminine gender.  (learn Greek) 

ΗΛΙΚΙΑ - HELIKIA (=AGE) - (ΗΛΙ=SUN) + (KΥA=CIRCLES) = how many circles round the Sun)


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