Just to play devil's advocate:
Which Koppa do I use for a number contained in an ancient inscription? For
example, Stigma-Koppa-Tau, Seleucid era year 396, as used in the East well
past end of the Seleucids.
Is the Koppa on coins of Corinth a number or a letter?
Following the logic used for a numeric Koppa codepoint, why isn't there a
numeric codepoint for every Greek letter used to indicate a number?
End of devil's advocate mode. And I really am interested in the answers.
