# Glagolitic numerals

 (2018 as a Glagolitic number)

The Glagolitic written numerals is one of numerals , the Glagolitic characters used. Similar to the Greek- Milesian system and like the Cyrillic system , it is an addition system in which letters as numerals stand for 1 to 9, for tens from 10 to 90 and for hundreds from 100 to 900. Unlike the Greek and probably also the Cyrillic system (but just like the Armenian system , which Constantine-Kyrill knew), the Glagolitic system also seems to have numerals for the thousands (of which only a few are documented).

The Glagolitic numerals differ from the Cyrillic numerals mainly in that the numerical values ​​of the individual letters are based on the order of the Glagolitic alphabet and not on the equivalent in the Greek alphabet. This can lead to transliteration errors in Cyrillic texts that have been copied from a Glagolitic original, e.g. Glagolitic (k) '40' with Cyrillic к (k) '20' or even (č) '1000' with ч ( č) '90' is played.

The order of the characters is based on the order in which they are spoken in Slavonic, so that at 11–19 the ones stand in front of the tens (see the example above). Further details on the combination of numerals can be found in the article Cyrillic numbers .
