They admitted that drawing a hole head of an ox is not really an economic way to mention only an "A" sound.
They were moving around The Mediterranean Sea all the time and taught people on the docks what they have done for writing quicker and easier (...and sell their violet painted textile products too, absolutely.). Then in time nations all around the world become using it in slightly different shapes. And the "Aleph" letter distributed all around the world in examples like: "A", "Alpha", "Alef", "Elif", et cetera...
