Greek Numerals...again

I have no desire to beat a dead horse, but a perusal of the b-greek
archives did not resolve my question so I venture to ask it here:

Does anyone know when Greek letters began to be primed and used as
numbers? Did it begin in Attic Greek, in koine, or sometime in the last
several hundred years?

Thank you
