No, it's a "Western Civilization" thing left over from the Romans.

By the way, am I the only person who's thoroughly sick of seeing
Roman Numerals anywhere except antique clocks?

In my view they have no place in publications, not even in the

If a page needs numbering, put it in the usual "Arabic" numbers.
