Binocular O (majuscule, minuscule) is one of the exotic glyph variants of Cyrillic letter O. This glyph variant can be found in certain manuscripts in the plural or dual forms of the root word eye, like .[]

A similar glyph (called "double-dot wide O") has also been humorously suggested as a phonetic symbol for the "nasal-ingressive velar trill" (not to be confused with velaric ingressives or click consonants, a set of sounds which don't include trills), a paralinguistic impression of a pig's snort, due to the resemblance to a pig snout. However, the glyph used thereupon is slightly different and was intentionally created, rather than directly stemming from the binocular O.[1]
