Should this be moved to Cyrillic numerals? Glagolitic numerals worked similarly, but used the native alphabet order. Cyrillic numerals inherited the order from Greek, and ignored the new Cyrillic letters which were invented for Slavic languages. Michael Z. 18:40, 2004 Dec 3 (UTC)

And if wanted to get "҂аѱ" you click "а" and "ѱ" and got "ѱа" and forgot "҂", highlight the "а" and click "҂". Then you'll get ҂аѱ. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:00, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

written as text[edit]

It would be useful to see some examples numbers written as text. I'm not sure I understand which symbols are used from the images shown. It seems Ionian numerals don't have a zero, and it would be helpful to reiterate that here. So, the digits 1-9 (apparently) are "А В Г Д Є Ѕ ? Н Ѳ", 10-90 are "І К Л М И Ѯ О П У", etc. Should these be written with a titlo (i.e. "А҃ В҃ Г҃" etc) as the article mentions, or not? The images shown are inconsistent. 11 and 12 are "АІ" and "ВІ" respectively, while 21 and 32 are "КА" and "ЛВ". 500 is "Ф", 6000 is "҂Ѕ", 70k is Ѳ⃝, 800k is H҈., 9M is Ѳ҉ (these last ones may not display correctly if your font/browser doesn't overlay properly). Please correct my mistakes, and add something like this to the article. ⇔ ChristTrekker 15:26, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

I added in a few such examples and tried to make the text clearer about combining letters to create bigger numbers. Carter (talk) 21:52, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Ten legions vs legion of legions (short vs long scale?)[edit]

It's weird that 105 is legion, but 106 is legion of legions. The reason might be that these numbers can have two different values, in a sort of short and long scale. In the large scale those values are 1012 a 1024. As claimed here (not well cited though). —Mykhal (talk) 10:37, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
