Do you mean the date 24-01-1988? The Romans had no numeral for zero so it does become simply 24.1.1988. This date can be made using a combination of the following numerals. I = 1. V = 5, X = 10, L = 50, C = 100 and M = 1000. 24 becomes XXIV (XX = 20 and IV = 1 less than 5, which is 4). 1 becomes simply I and 1988 is made up by adding MCM (1900, which is M = 1000 combined with CM which 100 less than 1000 = 900). 80 = LXXX and 8 = VIII. So, the entire date 24.1.1988 becomes XXIV.I.MCMLXXXVIII.
