What does "does not work" mean?

Excel crashes?
Error message? If so, what is the message.
Wrong result? If so, what is your input and output.

What you posted shows $3:$3999 for the array which is incorrect and not the
same as the original and, even if everything else were correct, would give an
incorrect answer.

This is something that can change if you insert rows. If that is the issue,
then:

=MATCH(A1,ROMAN(ROW(INDIRECT("1:3999"))),0)

entered as an array formula by holding down <ctrl><shift> while hitting <enter>
will allow row insertion without changing the references.

Maybe you didn't enter the formula as an array formula.

Maybe the contents of A1 is not a roman numeral in the proper format.
