Nope: four letters.
Very close though: the Phoenician alphabet - Wikipedia[^] predates Greek (indeed, "alpha" is derived from the Phoenician "alep") and since before Phoenician all written material was hieroglyph based, it's first letter was the solution I wanted: ALEP - first letter of any alphabet Laugh | :laugh:

But you'd have to be a true word nerd to know that, and ALEP isn't an English word anyway, so I decided to go with something else entirely.
