The at sign, @, is normally read aloud as 'at', it is also commonly called the at symbol, commercial at or address sign. It is used as an accounting and invoice abbreviation meaning 'at a rate of' (e. g. 7 widgets @ 2 per widget = 14), but it is now seen more widely in email addresses and social media platform handles. The absence of a single English word for the symbol has prompted some writers to use the French arobase or Spanish and Portuguese arroba, or to coin new words such as ampersat, asperand, and strudel, but none of these have achieved wide use. Although not included on the keyboard of the earliest commercially successful typewriters, it was on at least one 1889 model and the very successful Underwood models from the 'Underwood No. 5' in 1900 onward. It started to be used in email addresses in the 1970s, and is now routinely included on most types of computer keyboards. The earliest yet discovered symbol in this shape is found in a Bulgarian translation of a Greek chronicle written by Constantinos Manasses in 1345. Held today in the Vatican Apostolic Library, it features the @ symbol in place of the capital letter alpha '' in the word Amen. Why it was used in this context is still unknown.
