The Greek week names Monday through Thursday (Deftera, Triti, Tetarti,
Pempti - with apologies for maybe non-standard transliteration) contain
the plain words 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, respectively.

(Just for the record, and without saying this is in any context more or
less correct than something else.)
