Crossed O (Ꚛ ꚛ; italics: Ꚛ ꚛ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script, similar to the Cyrillic letter O but with the addition of a cross.
Crossed O is used in the Old Church Slavonic language. The crossed o is primarily used in the word ꚛкрест (around, in the region of) in early Slavonic manuscripts, whose component крест means 'cross'.
