I have a Greek Grammar by Goodwin & Gulick. It says that vau or digamma was
equivalent to w. Which does happen to represent the number "6." In fact,
after I got to looking, they tell me how to count at least up to 100,000 using
Greek characters for numerals. I didn't think to look here before I asked at
the first, but thanks for all your help anyway.
