Church Slavonic Numerals

Church Slavonic numerals are formed using characters of the Church Slavonic alphabet, with each character corresponding to a numeric value. The values assigned to the letters are based on the ordering of the Greek alphabet. Numbers are formed by writing the numerals left to right from largest value to smallest. A titlo is put over the second digit from the right (or, if there is only one digit, over the only digit). For example, the number 326 is written as:

The numbers 11-19 are an exception, with the smaller numeral on the left. For example, 18 is written as:

Numbers greater than 1,000 use the numerals for the digits 1-9 to represent the thousands and are prefixed with a slanted cross symbol. For example, 1508 is written as:
