In the Greek cabala the obsolete letter digamma may be substituted for the two letters 'st' where they occur together (See, K. Barry, The Greek Qabalah, Samuel Weiser Inc., ME, 1999, p.217). This gives a combined value of 6 rather than 500. Thus a word like Σταυρος (cross) has a value of either 1271 or 777.

The rule of Colel allows for the addition or subtraction of one digit to or from a computed total.
