Brief History and Origin of Roman Numerals
When were roman numerals discovered? The history and origin of Roman numerals has not been made clear by the writers of the period. What is clear is that numerals were used by the ancient Etruscans. An interesting aspect of the Etruscan numeral system is that some numbers, like in the number system of the Romans, are represented as partial subtractions. The Etruscan numeric system was adapted from the Greek Attic numerals providing ideas for the later Roman numerals. However, the origin of the Roman numeral system is probably very simple. The system is based on the number 10 - so no doubt this ancient counting system was originally based based on a counting method using the fingers. A single stroke of the pen would represent one finger. The Latin word for 100 is centum and for 1000 is mille giving the numerals C and M.
