Are you saying that precisely the same character ("9:") can be found
in old Irish manuscripts? Also, what is "con"; is it the Latin word,
or an Irish word? If it's the Latin word that would mean that the
character used in a different sense in Irish, right? And today the
Irish use ".i." as an abbreviation for "i.e.", rather than "9:"?

Sorry, but I'm having difficulties making out what it is you are
