### What is Roman numeral MCMXCIX?

1999
In today's terms MCMXCIX are the Roman numerals for 1999
But the Romans themselves would have probably calculated 1999 on
an abacus counting device as MDCCCCLXXXXVIIII and simply wrote it
out as IMM (-1+2000 = 1999)
Today's rules governing the Roman numeral system were introduced
during the Middle Ages but that was centuries after the decline of
the Roman Empire.
