    Knew they were Roman numerals … didn’t know what they indicated.

    His nephew can’t be very bright if he doesn’t recognize Roman numerals.

    maybe MCMXXXVIII might be easier on the eye, an expert on ancient languages, ya say?

    Yeah, everybody knowing even a bit of Roman numerals would know the “no more than three of the same” rule. So the code should have been a fake.

    To be fair it says “some kind of expert” he doesn´t state that he is actually an expert. Might just be self proclaimed.

    For those saying the code is fake because of the four C’s, actual Roman nomenclature for the ancient times often used only the additive notation (IIII or CCCC) instead of the subtractive notation (IV or CD), especially in “official” documentation. So, technically, it is correct.

    Bah. Roman, Latin… it’s all Greek to me!

    If Marty is the nephew of both Danger and Hugo, that pretty much means the dead guy is Danger’s brother or brother in law. (Unless perhaps Marty is married, which I think we can all agree is highly unlikely.
