Why is the word 'phone' spelled with a 'P' and not an 'F'?

Ever wondered why 'phone' starts with a 'P' and not an 'F'? Well, buckle up folks, because I was just as stumped as you are now! The reason is quite interesting - it all goes back to the Greeks. The word 'phone' comes from the Greek word 'phōnē', meaning 'voice' or 'sound'. So, the 'P' is there because the Greeks decided it should be, and we've just been going along with it! Aren't languages a hoot?
