Caption: Chinese and Sinhalese text, 18th century manuscript. The Chinese characters and names (left) are for weights and measures, and the proper names of places and people. The Sinhalese text (right) shows the names of the months and days of the week. This page is from the book Syntagma dissertationum quas olim auctor doctissimus (1767), the posthumous collected works of the English orientalist Thomas Hyde (1636-1703).
