Author:Oliver Lawrence
Description: The Romans used only seven letters; the combination of a letter and its position could represent any number. They also used a line above the letter, so the numbering system actually represents our own very closely, with fourteen different symbols. The major difference was how they treated notion of zero. This site includes a table of Roman numerals, plus uses for Roman numerals (clocks), software aids, and a Roman numeral game.
