210 are the years of shi'bud Mitzrayim. (Rash"i on B'reshis 15:13)
Per the Qetoret recipe laid out in Masekhet Keritot (6A), there are 210 maneh in the following combinations of samanim (spices):
The 210 years of exile are hinted in first seven sentences (Shemot 1:1-7) for there are precisely 210 letters. - Jewish Wisdom in the Numbers, '210'; Rokeach, op. cit. 1:7
3 mentions (Bereshit 46:27, Shemot 1:5, Devarim 10:22) of '70 migrants'. 3 x 70= 210 - Rokeach, Shemot 1:5
If you look at the ה , you can see a 'hidden' י and a ר. The sum of their gematria's equal 210. Slightly easier to make out through script versus block or print Hebrew. (Mishnah Berura S36; Personal observations)
