Numerals of a Peruvian mystery language

Numerals of an otherwise-unknown Peruvian language were recently unearthed. They were written down in the early 1600s. It's not Quechua, though some numbers appear to be borrowed from Quechua or one of its relatives.

Thank you for this. I just returned from an archaeological tour of Peru.
