I really enjoyed this post. When I read the title, I expected it to be about confusing the numerals 2 and 6, since in Eastern Arabic numerals, they are mirror images of each other, but this inscription is from much earlier than those numerals were used in Arabic. It never crossed my mind how similar the words sitt and ithnatayn look without i3jaam.
