Which of the following Roman numerals stands for 4?

IV
IIII
Both IV and IIII
None of the above
Both no­ta­tions are correct and his­tor­i­cal­ly Roman numerals were often written less con­sis­tent­ly than today. The notation 'IIII' is often seen on clock faces. The reason for that may be prac­ti­cal, to avoid con­fus­ing the IV and VI when the clock is held upside down (although other theories also exist).
