Believe me, they are obsolete, and aren't any more installed.

So? if your reasoning means that DOS uses for that port the name COM1,
than it is /dev/ttyS0 (historically, TTYs always started from zero, and
also don't presume that Linux does something in some way "because" DOS
does it in the same way: it's surely a case :-).
$ ls -la /dev/ttyS*
