    I guess I'm not seeing it, but what's wrong with XIX? :scratch:

    Imagine the inlays have been made by an ancient roman :) in wich case IXX instead of XIX can be considered as accurate...
    imho it is not an error


    HNGD... it's a gem

    Wait, what? I'm interested in learning that - did they used to number differently?

    Edit: Well, I'll de damned, you're right. It turns out there is no Latin word translation for XIX. They used XVIIII, which means "nineteen" in Latin translation, or IXX, which means "one from twenty." We developed XIX much later. Which also makes sense, because Dylan simply does not make mistakes. Only foolish mortals, such as ourselves, would assume so.
