They do exist but I'm not sure Russian chronicles or books published before 1941 had the ISBN. Will try to find a scan. Will this be enough to prove the sources?--Numulunj pilgae 15:28, 4 October 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Numulunj pilgae (talkcontribs)

Third paragraph starts randomly, "The wolf bone was excavated in Moravia." Disjointed sentences[edit]

The third paragraph starts out like so:

"The wolf bone was excavated in Moravia. It is dated to about 30,000 years ago and has 55 tally marks. The Ishango Bone found in the Ishango region of what is today..."

This is poorly written, the two sentences seem to come out of nowhere and have no context before or after them. Might want to fix. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:54, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Moksha numerals[edit]

The content on moksha numerals needs verification. The content was merged after Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Moksha numerals; at the time, another article on the moksha logographic system was deleted as an apparent hoax. All the sources cited for this tally system are old Russian-language sources, and at the AfD this was also suspected to be a hoax. I can't find any sources (other than Wikipedia mirrors) that mention these marks. Fences&Windows 12:41, 11 April 2016 (UTC)
