A septendecillion or septdecillion is equal to 1054 in America, or 10102 in France and Germany.[1][2]

In the long scale, 1054 is called nonillion, which is commonly used in France and Germany. Sbiis Saibian calls this number nonilliad using his -illiad suffix.[3]

This number is also called oktadekillion in Russ Rowlett's Greek-based naming system.[4]

Donald Knuth calls this number octeciad, and it's equal to using the -yllion system.
