I thought the number over the note was the string number for violin. But what are the roman numerals below the score?
How do I finger this score in violin? Could you number on the score please...

The sequence of Roman numerals below the score is an alternative assignment of notes to strings, i.e. you can't follow both at the same time. (The visual hint is that alternatives are often printed in an italic font.)
The digits (Arabic numerals) above the notes are referring to the fingers you are supposed to use and the roman numerals below the notes are referring to the string you are supposed to play the notes on.
I is the E string
II is the A string
III is the D string
IV is the G string
