Roman inscription, ca. AD 100, showing long i's contrasting with apices on other vowels.

Long i, ⟨ꟾ⟩, transcribes a long i-vowel /iː/ in Latin. It stands in for the apex used on other the long vowels: ⟨á é ó v́/aː eː oː uː/. An example is LV́CIꟾ·A·FꟾLIꟾ, which in modern rendition would be lūciī a fīliī, with a macron rather than apex to indicate vowel length.
