For 4 you don't use 'I' but 'IV'.

So correct is XIV

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legio_XIV_Gemina

You will see that in the wikipedia they used XIIII but, as I said, is numerically wrong.

The answer is not obvious. I've send a question with that to the leader of This reconstruction group who is a historician and works at Maria Skłodowska-Curie University in Lublin.

I'm curious myself.


BTW: Zedrek - Great Post! :)

I've got an answer:


...

Legio XIIII gdyz "czwórke" w starozytności pisano za pomocą czterech
jedynek : IIII , tak samo "dziewiątke" : VIIII
Pisownia lacinska : XIV , jest to dopiero pisownia wedlug laciny
średniowiecznej ...



Legio XIIII becouse number "4" in ancient ages was written using four I:
IIII , similarly "9" : VIIII
Latin numbers: XIV , comes from miediaeval Latin language
...


Interesting and new info even for me :)
