Acme::MetaSyntactic::roman - The roman theme


Roman numbers from I to MMMCMXCIX.

According to the modern rules governing the Roman Numbers, a numerical symbol cannot appear more than three times in a contiguous row. Also, the modern rules have forgotten the symbols for 5000 and more, so the highest symbol is M for 1000. From that, you can conclude that the highest Roman number compatible with modern rules is MMMCMXCIX, that is, 3999. See
