Etymology[edit]

From the similarity of the stigma (Ϛ), a Byzantine ligature of the common Greek consonant cluster σ-τ using sigma's lunate form ϲ, with the medieval variant of the numerical form of digamma (Greek Digamma angular.svg), employed in Greek numerals for the value six, its place in the epichoric Milesian Greek alphabet (where it was more often written Ϝ).

Numeral[edit]

ΣΤ΄ ‎(ST΄)

  1. The Greek numeral representing the number six (6), typically romanized as the Roman numeral VI.
    Ο Πτολεμαίος ΣΤʹ Φιλομήτωρ ( 186 – 145 π.Χ. ) ήταν ο έκτος φαραώ της Δυναστείας των Πτολεμαίων.
    Ptolemy VI the Mother-Lover (186–145 B.C.) was the sixth pharaoh of the Dynasty of the Ptolemies.

Usage notes[edit]

The Greek numbers from 1 to 999 are properly marked using the Greek numeral sign (κεραία, keraía). This appears in Unicode as greek numeral sign ʹ (U+0374), which is anomalous on Wiktionary and improperly links as ʹ (modifier letter prime, U+02B9). This entry is encoded using the modern Greek accent mark (τόνος, tónos), which appears in Unicode as tonos ΄ (U+0384). Other marks are also sometimes used.
