Roman Numerals

Roman Numerals are a numbering system used in ancient Rome. Today we use what are called Arabic Numerals.

Roman Numerals were ground breaking at the time but fell out of use - mostly because Roman Numerals cannot exceed 3,999, cannot represent "zero", and are slow to write.

Today, Roman Numerals are commonly used for writing numbers in a stylized format (e.g. The date on a building, numbers on a clock, or for numbering the Superbowl. The current year, 2024, can be written as MMXXIV.
