Here are linked clues:

  1. An ancient alphabet
  2. Related to an association between measures of a circle
  3. Part of a title of an English movie of an auto-biopic
  4. An abbreviated form representing loyal/devout attitude, perhaps the shortest adjective

How are all of these clues linked, and what common literal do they point to?

Seems too obvious, but maybe a partial answer:

Pi?

  1. An ancient alphabet

    Pi is a letter of the Greek alphabet

  2. Related to an association between measures of a circle

    Pi is used to measure circumference and area of a circle

  3. Part of a title of an English movie of an auto-biopic

    @Phylyp has forced me to say "Life of Pi", so I'll attempt to justify it below.

    It's an American movie based on a Canadian book, so perhaps 'English' means the language as opposed to nation of origin/setting?
    Neither the book nor the film itself is biographical, though the story itself is something of a biography being written about Pi's life (I think? Sorry, never actually saw/read it).

    Also, the way "auto-biopic" is written makes me think we're looking for a biography about cars.

  4. An abbreviated form representing loyal/devout attitude, perhaps the shortest adjective

    Pious (but not sure about the "shortest adjective" part)

    $\begingroup$ @Phylyp I considered that film, but I don't think "English" or "auto-biopic" fit. Regarding your second comment, I agree that it's probably just part of the answer. $\endgroup$ – hagfy May 25 '18 at 15:33

    $\begingroup$ @Phylyp Included it as well as an attempt to justify how it fits the clue. =) $\endgroup$ – hagfy May 25 '18 at 16:02

    $\begingroup$ could also go with adding __co to your answer, a prefix for something very small/short $\endgroup$ – thugsinuggs May 25 '18 at 18:44
