COMMENTS

Greek has its own alphabet, which for our convenience here we will transliterate as a, b, g, d, e, z, i, th, i, k, l, m, n, x, o, p, r, s, t, i, f, ch, ps, o.

Watts (2004) gives alternate spellings for 7, 8, 9 (and 17, 18, 19) which presumably carry over to all numbers having those digits. The accent is placed differently in the word for 9: enniá instead of ennéa, but the number of letters remains the same. - Alonso del Arte, Feb 24 2013
