Originally posted by @wolfgang59 The Roman numeral for 4 is IV
but almost always on a clock face it is IIII

that is the Useless Fact of the Day

Quite. And the Romans themselves, historically, did write XIIII. IX is a "modern" invention. "Modern" in scare quotes because the Romans themselves invented it, just slighly later (AFAIAA "only" in Republican rather than Regal/Etruscan times) than when they started using IXC Reveal Hidden Content

M being an altogether later invention from (}) )

Therefore, anyone who claims IIII is wrong, is simply a modernist barbarian - so there.
