  Digamma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Digamma (upper case Ϝ, lower case ϝ) is an archaic letter of the Greek alphabet, used primarily as a Greek numeral.
It is attested in archaic and dialectal ancient Greek inscriptions, and is occasionally used as a symbol in later Greek mathematical texts.
Digamma, like Y, derives from the Phoenician letter Waw, and in its turn gave rise to the Roman letter F.

 Digamma function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the digamma function is defined as the logarithmic derivative of the gamma function:
The digamma has a rational zeta series, given by the Taylor series at z=1.
This series is easily derived from the corresponding Taylor's series for the Hurwitz zeta function.

The Digamma distribution is the distribution of the unit deviance for a gamma generalized linear model.
The Digamma distribution is closed related to the Chisquare.
The Digamma distribution is so named because it is dual to the gamma distribution in the above sense, and because the digamma function appears in it's mean function.

It is possible that vowels were substituted on a model similar to that used for Enochian in EQUINOX I,7, and that digamma was used for both ST and V. Not enough information is on the slip to decide this matter.
This application of Stau is different from the application of Digamma by the letter Vau or the use of GR:Digamma without asterisk.
Very probably, the "W" and the "f" would be rendered by Digamma, the "Th" by Theta and perhaps the "f" could instead be rendered by Psi, or Upsilon.

Robert Barber, a free-lance Bible sleuth from Oceanside, reports that an obsolete Greek letter, the digamma, representing ``six'' in the ancient Greek alphabet, is pronounced in English as ``W.''
Digamma was once the sixth letter in the Greek alphabet, he said, but it was not used in speech or writing in New Testament times.
Although the Greek letter is pronounced ``wuh,'' Smith said that no one ever wrote ``digamma digamma digamma'' or said ``wuh wuh wuh'' to mean ``666.''
