Ayn is the sixteenth letter of the Semitic abjads, including Phoenician ʿayin , Hebrew ʿayin ע, Aramaic ʿē , Syriac ʿē ܥ, and Arabic ʿayn ع
“Ayn” in Hebrew, Arabic, and Amharic means “eye” and “spring”, and the Phoenician letter had an eye-shape. In some cultures, a person receiving the evil eye would have bad luck.
The eye symbol is used in jewelry as protection against evil eye.
