There is none (The Greek didn't have a digit for Zero either).
The Arabs introduced the Zero as a digit, thus contributing greatly to the develoment of Algebra (Arab. "al-gabr").
The Arabs learned about the Zero from the Hindus.

Which again shows that this Internet thing about "War in the Mare Nostrum" is a fake. The Arabs are missing!

They're not missing. By the time the "Arabs" show up, you should be using Greek not Latin.

Re airplane, maybe use bolts of ligthning from Jupiter???

And don't forget these forums

The Roman archery dud rate... or Why do the tips keep falling off my arrows?

After winning a land battle adjacent to a enemy-controlled city hex, is it gamey to catapult enemy cadavers over the walls of the city during a siege phase? Or friendly ones?

With the original post I smiled and laughed. With this line? Well, fortunately keyboards are cheap!

While true there was no real number 0 used by the Romans; nulla (N) was used later iirc

Al Gore didn't invent the internet? Wow. I've imagined him all these years in his underwear in the basement sitting in front of an Apple IIe, writing code. Now I find out that it was Julius Scribus Codus instead. Bummer.

Nulla was used as a word (even in calculations). But there was no digit for zero.

Oh, and I always thought the Greek culture is older than the Roman culture

Thanks for all the praise. 

I don't take credit for the idea, BTW. I saw something similar on another forum many, many moons ago. No idea why I remembered it now... I had a lot of fun doing this!
