Clock

On analog clocks, the hours are usually indicated with arabic numerals as

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

or with roman numerals as

ⅡⅡ

On a clock the number is almost always shown as ⅡⅡ.

 


Variants

Because roman numerals have no symbol for 0, you start with . With arabic numerals it could be otherwise.

ⅩⅠ
ⅠⅠ
ⅠⅠⅠⅠ
 
12
11 1
10 2
9 3
8 4
7 6 5
 
0
11 1
10 2
9 3
8 4
7 6 5
 
Roman Arabic Otherwise

After all, on a digital clock you get

00:00

with double zero, and that surprises apparently nobody.
