Roman numerals are largely used in the chapter numeration of some books, in some clocks and watches dials, when a century is given, in the name of some kings, etc. Rome was, in fact, one of the most remarkable ancient civilizations and so the Roman Numerals were used by all the inhabitants of this great empire.
