We illustrate here some phenomena of the Ugaritic numeric system as they relate to computer encoding.

Note, in particular, the need for 4 Akkadian signs.


Claude Schaeffer 1978 Ugaritica VII

John Huehnergard 1989 The Akkadian of Ugarit

Daniel Sivan 1997 A Grammar of the Ugaritic Language

Josef Tropper 2000 Ugaritische Grammatik

Here is a proposed set of Ugaritic numerics, taking into account the scheme for the generation of the numbers illustrated above. (This could be shortened but it depends on how complicated we want computer system implementations to be.)
