COMMENTS

The sequence is finite because 3999 is the largest number that can be written using the symbols I,V,X,L,C,D,M. -  J. Lowell, Nov 17 2020

The Romans had symbols for 5000, 10000, 50000, and 100000, but they have no simple equivalents in our current alphabet. See The Book of Numbers, p. 19. The symbol for 100000 is sometimes represented by (((|))). - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 28 2020
