Abstract [en]

Nine numerical inscriptions on metal tools from Chanhu-daro, Kalibangan and Mohenjo-daro are shown to constitute a text genre of their own. It is tested whether the expressions relate to the weights of the tools and/or to the contemporary system of weight units. Both tests are negative. The number system appears as octal on internal grounds. Structures of numerical systems are discussed extensively.
