Naw, an ancient book tells us that the EU is the revived Roman Empire.

Larger numbers were indicated by putting a horizontal line over them, which meant to multiply the number by 1,000. Hence the V above has a line over the top, which means 5,000. This usage is no longer current, because the largest numbers usually expressed in the Roman system are dates.

Its much more effort putting a line over the number than under and thats what they did on that page.

the Romans didnt have a need for large numbers and the line system I believe is actually Medieval, but its all in fun anyway
