""I being studying the affinities between Phoenician, Latin, Etruscan & Greek and how the numbers are named and it's history is interesting, There is uncertainty with the Etruscan number names, all websites that show these numbers, hu&#952; his either 6 or 4 and sem&#966; is either 7 or 8.

In English, we have Eleven & Twelve meaning one-left & two-left, the rest of the numbers are three-right, four-right

Eleven & Twelve can be written using Greek cognates.

Eleven : &#949;&#953;-&#955;&#949;&#943;&#960;&#969; , &#949;&#953;-&#955;&#945;&#953;&#972;&#962; * One to the Left
Twelve : &#948;&#8059;&#959;-&#955;&#949;&#943;&#960;&#969; , &#948;&#8059;&#959;-&#955;&#945;&#953;&#972;&#962; * Two to the Left

Thirteen : &#964;&#961;&#8055;&#962;-&#948;&#8051;&#954;&#945; * Three to the Right
Fourteen : &#964;&#8051;&#963;&#963;&#945;&#961;&#949;&#962;-&#948;&#8051;&#954;&#945; * Four to the Right
Fifteen : &#960;&#8051;&#957;&#964;&#949;-&#948;&#8051;&#954;&#945; * Five to the Right

&#949;&#953;&#962;(1) &#948;&#8059;&#959;(2) &#964;&#961;&#8055;&#962;(3) &#964;&#8051;&#963;&#963;&#945;&#961;&#949;&#962;(4) &#960;&#8051;&#957;&#964;&#949;(5) &#7957;&#958;(6) &#7953;&#960;&#964;&#8049;(7) &#8000;&#954;&#964;&#8061;(8) &#7952;&#957;&#957;&#8051;&#945;(9)

Four is lengthier, compared too the other numbers in Greek & Latin , most of these names are similar too the Etruscan & Phoenician names accept for 4 & 10. The Etruscan & Phoenician word for 10 is SAR, this became Four""
