1166 (And All That)

I came across something that interested me the other day: the year 1666 is the one you get when you list all seven Roman numerals in order, from highest to lowest: MDCLXVI.

(As Captain Jerry said when I told him this, it’s too bad the Romans all had declined and fallen by then, so none of them still was around to appreciate that fact.)
