I have recently bought a NT Greek book for 101 Students of the languge. I am still struggling with learning Greek although I learned German rather easily. But I did have a question the book did not address: Were Greek numbers spelled out or did they use merely symbols for greek numbers? I know in the MSS we have the numbers are spelled out but the church I attended when I was growing up claimed the numbers were represented by single letters or symbols in the original autographs and only later were switched over to spelled out words. If this is so did the LXX spell out Greek numbers or did they merely use symbols? Any help would be appreciated,
