You know these words...yes you do!

Youknowthesewordsyesyoudo Photo Please READ THIS before attempting the puzzle!!

I’ll give you a clue, for an answer that consists of two parts, which may come in either order. One half of the clue will be a Roman numeral, which may or may not be scrambled. The other half is a (not very) cryptic crossword clue. The clue for the Roman numeral element will be a number (such as 106) and the answer will involve only the numbers used in the standard Roman numerals – I V X L C D M (for 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000) plus O for zero – yes, I know that is an anachronism but it is my puzzle!
For example the clue ‘106 on an English and French indefinite article’ could clue VIC-UNA. Note that 106 could be CVI, CIV, or any arrangment of these three elements.
The whole word will NOT be clued -- just the two halves.

MID would be 1501 not 1499 by the way – there are no subtractive numbers in this puzzle.

Very good puzzle. My bad on the last question. Should have had
my glasses on to distinguish the "i" in Eliot. (I saw Ellot.)
