Best Answer

The modern western alphabet is based on Classical Greek and Roman letters.

The first two letters of the Classical Greek alphabet are 'Alpha(A)' and 'Beta(B)' . By ligating these two words we have the word 'Alphabet'.

Alpha Beta = Alphabet(a).

Roman numerals are selected letters from the alphabet in order to represent numbers.

M (Mille)= 1000

D = 500

C (Centum) = 100

L = 50

X = 10

V = 5

I (Capital letter 'I') = 1.
