Chinese Numbers. The first column is the Arabic/Indian numerals, the second column is the standard Chinese character, and the third column is the “capital” Chinese character. The "capital" forms are known as banker's anti-fraud numerals, necessary because Chinese standard characters are so simple, a forger could easily change 三十 to 五千 with just three strokes. Some have other uses as well (for example, 贰 èr can also mean "to betray").
