Numbers with Non-sequential Values

Numbers with possible values that cannot be expressed as a range.

Some numbers, especially if they are damaged or incomplete, can be partially but not completely interpreted. Unlike those whose possible values can be expressed as a numerical range, the examples offered here are of numbers whose values are non-sequential; for instance, a two-digit number where the units value survives, but the tens unit does not.

No example rendering in standard epigraphic conventions.

   quantity="1"
   unit="character"/>
