COMMENTS
This sequence is consistent with the Roman numerals as expressed in the Schildberger link. 4 (usually IV now) could be included in a variant of this sequence as IIII is sometimes used (especially on clock faces). To make this or similar sequences well-defined for numbers larger than 3999, it must be decided whether and how to handle the apostrophus (backward-C), the vinculum (bar), the frame, or even other multiplier notations used at various times in representations of larger Roman numerals. Recalling the "Y2K crisis", will there be a(n even milder) "Y4M crisis"? In particular, is 4000 to be represented as MMMM, (I)(I)(I)(I) (where parentheses are used to represent C and the apostrophus), MV (with vinculum over the V), IV (with vinculum over both I and V) or IIII with vinculum over all four I's? If there is no general agreement, could Roman civilization be at risk (once again)?
