Afinal os nossos números

No século VI foram fundados na Síria alguns centros de cultura grega. Consistiam numa espécie de clube onde os sócios se reuniam para discutir exclusivamente a arte e a cultura vindas da Grécia.
Ao participar de uma conferência num destes clubes, em 662, o bispo sírio Severus Sebokt, profundamente irritado com o fato de as pessoas elogiarem qualquer coisa vinda dos gregos, explodiu dizendo:

“Existem outros povos que também sabem alguma coisa!
Os hindus, por exemplo, têm valiosos métodos de cálculos.
São métodos fantásticos! E imaginem que os cálculos
são feitos por apenas nove sinais!”.
A referência a nove, e não dez símbolos, significa que o passo mais importante dado pelos hindus para formar o seu sistema de numeração – a invenção do zero - ainda não tinha chegado ao Ocidente.
A idéia dos hindus de introduzir uma notação para uma posição vazia – um ovo de ganso, redondo – ocorreu na Índia, no fim do século VI. Mas foram necessários muitos séculos para que esse símbolo chegasse à Europa.
Com a introdução do décimo sinal – o zero – o sistema de numeração tal qual o conhecemos hoje estava completo.
Até chegar aos números que você aprendeu a ler e escrever, os símbolos criados pelos hindus mudaram bastante.
Hoje, estes símbolos são chamados de algarismos indo-arábicos.
Se foram os matemáticos hindus que inventaram o nosso sistema de numeração, o que os árabes têm a ver com isso?
E por que os símbolos

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

são chamados de algarismos?
