Count to a Million in Roman Numerals

It's like the other counting threads except its counting up in Roman numerals.

Roman Numeral Chart
(for those people who don't know)
I = 1
V = 5
X = 10
L = 50
C = 100
D = 500
M = 1000

I will start at one as the Romans haven't got a zero IIRC:

I

How will this work for numbers over 3999?

Is there a special character for 1 million, or is the final post going to have to contain exactly 1000 M's?

I believe that would be an M with a line over it.

You mean M = 1,000 & M with a line over it - 1,000,000 by any chance? Unless you know to add the line above the letter, we might have to stop at 4,000.

Re: Count to a Million in Roman Numerals

Reading that wiki page, it seems like an overline multiplies that roman digit by 1000. So V with an overline would be 5000.

So how do we put overlines on text in this forum?

Re: Count to a Million in Roman Numerals

I've heard that a line underneath supposedly works just as well as above.
Basically, if anyone's not understanding, the line multiplies the thing under/above it by 1000.
