Numbers in Gaulish

Gaulish is an extinct Celtic language that was spoken in parts of what is now France, Switzerland, Belgium and northern Italy until about the 6th century AD.

The ordinal numbers are attested to in finds at La Graufesenque, an archaeological site near Millau in Aveyron in southern France. The cardinal numbers are not know directly, but can be deduced from other material.
