The Number of the Beast
   Main article: Number of the Beast

616 is believed by some to have been the original Number of the Beast in the Book of Revelation in the Christian Bible.[1]
Different early versions of the Book of Revelation gave different numbers, and 666 had been widely accepted as the original
number. In 2005, however, a fragment of papyrus 115 was revealed, containing the earliest known version of that part of the
Book of Revelation discussing the Number of the Beast. It gave the number as 616, suggesting that this may have been the
original. [2] Apparently the two different numbers reflect two different spellings of Emperor Nero/Neron's name, for which this
number is believed to be a code. [3]
