Центум, которое вовсе не сто

The long hundred, great hundred, or twelfty[1] is the "hundred" of six score (120) used in Germanic languages prior to the 15th century. The number was simply described as hundred and translated into Latin in Germanic-speaking countries as centum (Roman numeral c.)

Получается что 120 могло перейти в 100, а 12 = "C" в 10.

12 L fevrier --> "У древних римлян 1/12 часть единицы веса, называвшейся либра (лат. libra)" - вот вам и "L" :)
