94 in Roman Numerals is XCIV.
The correct answer is = XLIX. Only I, X, and C can stand before a larger numeral to subtract from it, and they can't stand in front of numerals more than ten times… their value; IX for 9 is fine, but we can't write IL for 49 or IM for 1,999-we have to write XLIX or MCMXCIX.
Roman numerals are fun. I could simply give you the answer, but here's some info on it as a whole.. Lets see if I can explain this. If a number less than one of the "base numb…ers" is needed, it is written BEFORE the base. If it is above, it is written afterwards. I = 1 V = 5 X = 10 L = 50 C = 100 D = 500 M = 1000 So, as an example, "4" would be written as IV. Whereas "6" would be VI. Expanding on this, "49" would be XLIX, using XL (10 away from 50) for 4 and IX (1 away from 10) for 9. So, to answer your original question, 199 is roman numerals is written as: CXCIX C for the first 100, XC for the next 90, and IX for the last 9.
Romans wrote on paper made from reeds. They also wrote on animal skins, but the animal skins and paper were to expensive for school kids to write on so they wrote on wax table…ts. When they were done they rubbed it smooth and started again
Warfare in ancient times was drastically different from today. In the time of the Romans, foot soldier infantry were the primary fighting force. The Legionaries of Rome fought… primarily with the pilum, a javelin type spear, a short sword called a gladius, a dagger called a pugio, and a door or tower shield called the scutum. They wore scale armor composed of overlapping metal plates held together by leather strapping or a type of chain mail hauberk. They had additional armor to protect the limbs, such as greaves and vambraces. When engaging in combat, the Roman Legions followed strict tactical doctrines, which called for fighting in formations. This generally centered on the phalanx, which was a formation where the infantry formed a wall with their shields to block the attacks of other enemy infantry. By staying in a tight formation, the men behind the front line could protect themselves and the men of the front from arrows by holding their shields above them. The front light soldiers could then use their javelins or short swords to dispatch enemy combatants. The Roman Legions had many auxiliary combat forces, including cavalry, archers, and various siege engines, and warships. Ultimately, warfare in those ancient times was a bloody affair, as the opposing armies would literally have to hack each other to bits in order to force the opposition to surrender or to annihilate them outright. There was little in the way of medical treatment, so even minor wounds sustained in combat usually meant death or cripplement. Sieges were another affair altogether, as a fortress would be surrounded and besieged for months at a time, some even lasting years. All the while the attackers would lob boulders, flaming pitch, dead bodies and animals over the walls. They would attempt to breech any weak point in a fortification, generally under counter fire from the defenders, or scale the walls directly. Sieges were almost more grueling than outright combat, causing greater fatigue on the attackers, so it would be avoided when possible.
Bread was the basic food in the ancient Roman time when the Colosseum was one of the main sources of entertainment in ancient Rome. The government of ancient Rome used bre…ad to feed the masses of people on the socalled "dole". Thus it can be logically inferred that bread was a convenient food eaten during the "games" held at the Colosseum. During games and theatrical performances the Romans were known to eat salted peas, similar to the ones we find in Oriental Mix today.

/ Roman Soldiers at the time of the Emperor Hadrian wore forms of chain mail, scale armour and segmented armour mounted on leather or linen. Chain mail armour offered the… most protection and was the most flexible - an important consideration when fighting a battle. A skirt, or kilt made of strips of leather plated with metal offered protection for a soldiers legs and allowed flexibility and freedom of movement in battle. Roman Soldiers at the time of the Emperor Hadrian wore military sandals to protect their feet. These were called "caligae". The "caligae" were well-ventilated, strong leather sandals with leather straps. They had iron hob-nails protruding through the sole for extra grip and to be more hard-wearing. Later, in the Roman Empire a form of military boot was worn. Cloaks and capes were worn by Roman Soldiers. A lacerna, was a comfortable cloak that could be worn by soldiers over the top of a tunic. A military cape at first called trabea, then sagum, was much like a lacerna, but made of heavier material. Finally, a Roman Soldier would have worn an iron helmet into battle to protect his head and neck.

The battle of Cannae the most gruesome battle in the ancient world. Hannibal and his men and a team of mercenaries, which he picked up along the way, were heading on their way… to Italy to defeat the Romans. His tactic some would call crazy but he way very intelligent with how he dealt with his men. On the way to Rome (Roma), they crossed the Alps at the most dangerous time of the season, Winter, he did this because he wanted to weed out to weakest of the bunch and keep the strongest ready for battle the ones who couldn't make it out of the alps in the extreme temperature was left to die. when Hannibal reached the outside of Italy and rested his men for battle while the unexpected Roman army rushed into battle and so it began. The Romans out numbered drastically and with no rest nor food Hannibal and his army fought the Romans with his crescent platoon shape and the Romans ranks. Hannibal wanted to crescent so he could surround the Roman army and then just keep compressing the circle until each and every last Roman was dead. So then began the rain of Hannibal over the carthaginians (Hannibal's army). More than 300,000 Romans died on the battle field

The Romans liked to see good gladiatorial fights like many people like to see good boxing or wrestling fights nowadays. There is a common misconception about the gladiatorial… combats which is promoted by movies. Initially, gladiators fought to the death when the fights were part of a funerary ritual imported to Rome. However, this changed when Julius Caesar turned the combats into public games (entertainments). The missio ((the sparing of a defeated gladiator's life) became common practice. Refusals by emperors Caligula and Claudius to spare popular but defeated gladiators made them unpopular. Skill was more important than bloodshed. Winning a combat without causing injury was a desirable skill and several gladiators were praised for never injuring anyone. Successful gladiators were seen as heroes and on their death memorials with inscriptions about their deeds and glory were built. Big crowds went to seethe gladiatorial combats. Gladiators became big business for trainers and owners, aspiring politicians or high ranking men. The professional trainers made a living out of gladiators. Gladiators were an important investment for trainers, owners and those who sponsored them. They did not want to see the gladiators die immediately. Nevertheless, it was still a dangerous game and death rates were significant. The gladiatorial combats were one part of the gladiatorial games, which lasted the whole day or several days. Although they were the highlights, they were part of a range of entertainments The schedule of the day, which stared at 8 am and ended at dusk was: Displays of exotic animals Animal hunts which replicated hunting scenes Comic acts with clowns and dwarfs Acrobatic and gymnastic acts Tightrope walking Music and dances Animal acts similar to those at the circus Tortures and executions Wrestling Boxing Martial fights Gladiatorial fights which were the highlight of the day

The Romans were successful in battle because of their superior training. This training now only encompassed the physical aspects of battle and its formations, but they were al…so trained in the spirit of war, such as believing they could not lose. Before a battle their legate or general would give a pep talk extolling the superiority of the Romans over the "wimps" they were going to fight. They also had the high tech weapons of their time. This was a formula for success for centuries.
There were some minor incursions before 410AD but they did not really have too because the Roman legions left before they arrived. It was in fact the power vacuum left by the …Romans which the Anglo-Saxons filled. They fought against the native Britons.
