O-hook (? ?; italics: ? ?) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. In the Unicode text-encoding standard, this letter is called "Abkhasian Ha".[1] Its form bears some similarities to the Greek letter Theta (? ?/?). In English, O-hook is commonly romanized using the Latin letter O with dot below (? ?) but its ISO 9 transliteration is the Latin letter O with grave accent (Ò ò).

O-hook is used in the alphabet of the Abkhaz language where it represents the labial-palatal approximant /?/, the sound of ⟨hu⟩ in French "huit" ([?i]). It is placed between O and ? in the alphabet.
