  1. In Egyptian numerals, there are characters to represent 1,10,100, etc.
    See for a list:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_numerals

    Multiples are represented by duplicating the symbols (up to 9 times).

    Say
    X=1
    Y=10
    Z=100

    then
    245 would be written as
    ZZYYYYXXXXX
    or
    ZZ
    YYYY
    XXXX
    or even
    XXXXXYYYYZZ
    As the writing could be interpreted left-to-right or right-to-left. The distinct symbols make the value clear, without the notion of positions.
