He did put Tier 9, only in the ancient Roman way, not in the modernised way. IIRC Romans only went up. So it went I, II, III, IIII, V, VI, VII, VIII, VIIII, X.

VIIII is wrong, IX is the correct way to say 9.

Unless you meant they used the former in ancient rome.

Edit: yeah, you did. Reading comprehension ftw

When I originally wrote it I'd forgotten to put that distinction in. So there was a window (~5 mins) where my intent wasn't 100% clear.

Apologies in advance for off-topic. Where did you hear/read this ? Only ever seen IIII on clocks.

No Idea. Long ago when I was war gaming ancients. I pick up all sorts of useless information.
