    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
    and derivative?

    I looked at the numeration systems in the recent final
    Coptic proposal, but I saw nothing familiar
    ( ).

    Thanks, Elaine
