# [R] symbol in the plot

```Thank you again, Joh

Based on your code seems I solved the problem.
new code as follows:
cs<-expression(delta[1], delta[2])
plot(sigma, delta1, ylim=range(-0.5, 2), xlab='sigma', ylab='delta', pch=22,
type='o')
points(sigma, delta2, col='red', axes=FALSE, type='o')
legend("topleft", cs,    pch = c(21, 22), lty=1, col=2:1)

only concern is there is a waring message in R: Warning message:
In plot.xy(xy.coords(x, y), type = type, ...) :
"axes" is not a graphical parameter
