History

The Cyrillic letter Te was derived from the Greek letter Tau (Τ τ).

The name of Te in the Early Cyrillic alphabet was тврьдо (tvrdo), meaning "hard" or "surely".

In the Cyrillic numeral system, Te had a value of 300.

Form

The cursive forms in Serbian and Macedonian
The cursive form in Russian

The capital Cyrillic letter Te (Т т) looks the same as the capital Latin letter T (T t) but, as with most Cyrillic letters, the lowercase form is simply a smaller version of the uppercase.

In italic type and cursive, the lowercase form looks like the italic form of the lowercase Latin M , except in Serbian and Macedonian usage where it looks like an inverted lowercase Latin M, with a stroke above to distinguish it from the otherwise identical italic lowercase letter Sha , which is sometimes written with a stroke below. Compare the 5th letter pair in the 4th row with the last letter pair of the chart.

The cursive form of the capital letter Te can also be seen in the chart following the lower case letter.
