Query:   The names of Etruscan numerals were found on dice in tombs and
are given as:


These are thought to represent the numbers 1-6 but it is not known
which word means which number.

I have provisionally identified them as 1 HUTH 2 THU 3 MACH 4 ZAL
5 CI 6 SA

Does anyone know on which sides of the dice the different numbers
were placed? The positions may help to confirm or disconfirm the
identifications. HUTH+SA=7 ZAL+MACH=7 CI+THU=7.
