Historical Note on $2 \, 300 \, 000$ (Two Million, Three Hundred Thousand)

According to 1997: David Wells: Curious and Interesting Numbers (2nd ed.), this number appears on the Columna Rostrata of Gaius Duilius, in the form of the symbol for $100 \, 000$ repeated $23$ times.

However, the inscription is worn due to age, and the precise details of what is exactly written there are disputed.
