Ancient printed arabic numerals ?

I am searching ancient printed samples of arabic numerals for my Uccello font project. Does someone know some examples on the web ?
Thanks in advance !

    Given the context of the Uccello project, I presume you mean European numeral forms, not actual Arabic numeral forms? [When we refer to European numbers as 'Arabic', we're referring to the number system, not the shapes. Ironically, the Arabs refer to the number system as Indian.]

    This illustration shows, at the bottom, examples of early German typeset numerals from the 1480s.
  • Of course they are indian :-) Your link gives me the way ! Thanks a lot !
  • Wow, this looks almost like sheet music!
  • Who knew that numeric music was so ancient ! :)
