Birth date in roman numerals?
To write a date in roman numerals, you must convert the month
into its numeric equivalent (January = 1, February = 2...October =
10 etc.) Then you must decide which date format to use: MMDDYYYY or
MMDDYY or DDMMYY or DDMMYYYY etc. I believe it is common to follow
the MMDDYYYY format. When separating each number group, you can use
either a space, a dash or a period. Therefore, the date January 14,
2010 could look like I.XIV.MMX.
Another way of representing the date so that there is no
confusion between the month and the day is to show the month in
latin: JANUARIUS, FEBRUARIUS, MARTIUS, APRILIS, MAIUS, JUNIUS,
JULIUS, AUGUSTUS, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER.
If you want to be as authentic as possible, Romans did not have
the 'J' or 'U' in their alphabet so the months would look like:
IANVARIVS, FEBRVARIVS, MARTIVS, APRILIS, MAIVS, IVNIVS, IVLIVS,
AVGVSTVS, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER.
The months can be shown in either upper- or lowercase. The
months can be abbreviated to three letters followed by a stop,
except for MART. and SEPT.
In this format, January 14, 2010 could look like IAN.XIV.MMX or
