To nothing add ten, with three-fifths of two score,
And let them be joined by five hundred more.
These, rightly conjoined, will give you the name
Of a city that's high in the annals of fame.

Very good. Roman numerals never entered my mind. I did get the two score though (thanks Abe).

I don't think I would have ever figured this one out. Roman numerals just don't come to mind as a rule. Great riddle and you sure got me. Thanks for posting.

I got 10 + 24 (3/5 x 40) + 500 = 534, which didn't ring any bells.

GOOD..
I got it a different way
O-X-XXIV-D..which 'rightly conjoined' can give you
O-XXX-FOUR-D = OXFORD

Much too tough for me, but I did enjoy the struggle.

Really good! It needs a hint, though.

I was with craniac; I got the total 534, and unlike many others I DID think of Roman numerals, but DXXXIV didn't say anything!! You mixed Roman and the WORD FORTY, and THAT I couldn't have thought of!!!

a hint would have been helpful and much needed.

Oxford is also a shoe!

Good one!!!
