The Babylonians were famous for their astronomical observations and their calculations. They used a sexagesimal (base-60) positional numeral system, which they could have inherited from either the Sumerian or the Akkadian civilizations.
The numerals were written in cuneiform, using a wedge-tipped reed stylus. They marked onto soft clay tablets which would then be allowed to harden, by exposing it to sunlight, thereby creating a permanent record.
