Yep, I said that ... but now I don't know what exactly I've meant probably the fact, that those did not change much since 5th century, according to wikipedia.

The scolars, who made up the new systems back then were probably aware of Latin and Greek.choc_pud wrote:Why do you say "But they were invented a long time ago, so it is hard to expect much"?
