I'd add that the numeral "666" never
even occurs or appears in the Bible.
The Bible is a translation from Greek
and Aramaic, and until a few hundred
years ago, six hundred sixty and six
was written thus: DCLXVI, which is
actually a list of the Roman numerals
in descending order.
But since the letter M was not in the
original system "D C L X V I" were *all*
Roman numerals !
