I was in Egypt in 1995 for a bit. They had numbers I
don't know on the buses in Cairo etc.
Does anyone know if modern Egyptian numbers are
unique, or regional in North Africa or other? Are
they the 'real' Arabic numbers, and ours are medieval
I looked at the numeration systems in the recent final
Coptic proposal, but I saw nothing familiar
