ASCII Character ףHebrew letter final Pe
Pe is the seventeenth letter of the Semitic abjads, including the Hebrew alphabet. The original sound value is a voiceless bilabial plosive: /p/; it retains this value in most Semitic languages, except for Arabic, where the sound /p/ changed into the voiceless labiodental fricative /f/, carrying with it the pronunciation of the letter. The Hebrew spelling is פֵּא. It is also romanized pei or pey, especially when used in Yiddish. The letter Pe is one of the six letters which can receive a Dagesh Kal. The six are Bet, Gimel, Daleth, Kaph, Pe, and Tav. In gematria, Pe represents the number 80. Its final form represents 800 but this is rarely used, Tav written twice (400+400) being used instead.
