A-Z-archive-X-challenge

have a look at frizztext blog to see all the other resourceful X blogs

X,  One of the letters in the alphabet that is very little in demand.

For the Romans however, it was a totally different story.

They used the X symbol  to represent the number  10

As a youngster  I chose my first watch because it had Roman numbers.

During the period 1490 to 1650 a family  with the name van’t Sestich lived in this house and had their surname put  in the gable of the house, using Roman numbers

this house is in Naamsestraat Leuven

    I like the Roman numbers of clocks too!
    And I’m amused by the “X” commandments
    – they do not always follow …
