Daleth (דלת) is the fourth letter in the Hebrew alphabet and today has the sound value [d]. It has the numerical value 4.
The Daleth is a consonant whose written form in the Phoenician alphabet goes back to the representation of an open tent door. The Greek delta and the Latin D are also derived from this Phoenician letter .
Due to its numerical value, the Daleth is occasionally used in manuscripts to abbreviate the tetragram יהוה (Yhwh) ("the four letters").
