The conjunction is prefixed in Phoenician and suffixed in Latin -- big difference.

Let's count from one to ten.S ource: The Numbers List at zompist.com

Latin: ūnus duo trēs quattuor quinque sex septem octō novem decem
Greek: heīs dúō treīs téttares pénte héx heptá oktṓ ennéa déka
English: one two three four five six seven eight nine ten
Russian: odín dva tri četÿre pyat’ šest’ sem’ vósem’ dévyat’ désyat’
Hindi: ek do tīn cār pã̄c chai (che) sāt āṭh nau das
Hebrew: ’aḥat štayim šâlôš ’arba‘ ḥâmêš šêš šeba‘ šᵉmôneh têša‘ ‘eser
Phoenician: ’-ḥ-d š-n-m š-l-š ’-r-b ḥ-m-š š-š š-b-‘ š-m-n t-š-‘ ‘-š-r
Arabic: wāḥid iθnān θalāθah ’arba‘ah χamsah sittah sab‘ah θamāniyyah tis‘ah ‘ašarah
Aramaic: ḥaḏ tərên təlāṯā ʾarbəʿâ ḥamšâ šittâ šiḇʿâ təmānyâ tišʿâ ʿaśrâ
Akkadian: ištēn šena šalaš erbe h`amiš šiššu sebe samāne tiše ešer

Only six and seven look similar across this list. But It's very evident that Hebrew, Phoenician, Arabic, Aramic, and Akkadian have a lot in common, and that what they have in common is different from what Latin, Greek, English, Russian, and Hindi have in common.

The word "Four" underwent metathesis.
בעאר < ארבע > πίσυρες > πέτταρες > τέσσαρες ( fēower : werfēo : ארבע)

one from ten
εν-ἄπο-δέκα > εν-ἄπο-α > εν-νε-α > ennéa
εις-δέκα > ες-κα > têša

two from ten
δύο-ἄπο-δέκα > δύο-δέκα > έκα-δύο > ὀκ-τώ
δύο-ἄπο-δέκα > δ-ἄπο-έ > δ-מנ-έ > שמנה
