Default Best font for Roman numerals?

Is there a best font for displaying Roman numerals in the body of text (as
opposed to their use as page numbers in footers)?

A serif font will better approximate the "lines" than a sans serif one, but
there isn't any font that's totally convincing.

Thanks. I didn't think so.

Ironically, Arial Unicode MS is one of the "large" Unicode fonts that
include roman numerals as single characters (that is, a single character for
III, one for IV, etc.), but they're (not surprisingly) Arial and look
terrible.
