    Nope. Nor on clocks (except as a gag-gift). A century ago
    this was a limitation of imported technology, no doubt also a
    contributor to the displacement of Ethiopic numerals by
    western. If telephones had their origin in Ethiopia it might
    be a different story, perhaps today no phone numbers would exist
    with the digit 0 ;-)
