Lightbulb L America

L is the twelfth letter of the ISO basic Latin alphabet. It is used to represent 50 in Roman numerals..

It was often used, especially in handwriting, as the currency sign for the ITAlian Lira. It is also infrequently used as a substitute for the pound sign, which is based on it..Its LaTeX command is \Ell, its codepoint is U+2113...Lamedh may have come from a pictogram of an ox goad or cattle prod.. Some have suggested a shepherd's staff...
