ṬET (ט):

Ninth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The signification of its name is uncertain. Its sound is that of an emphatic surd dental (palatal English "t"). It occurs only as a radical, seldom as a formative element. It sometimes interchanges with the dentals ד and ת and with the sibilant צ. As a numeral, "ṭet" (in the later period) has the value 9.
