a great city 

A Whore 

A hatred thereof.  The Ottaman Empire, the tenth dynasty of Islam, ended the Byzantine Empire by attacking Constantinople where they reigned with Christ a thousand years.  It started with the fifth of the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire.  Check the numbers: a thousand, 666, ten, seven, and five.  Numbers can verify your interpretation.

A Fulfillment of Prophecy 

A victory over the beast.  Constantinople used Greek fire on the Sea of Marmara, like a sheet of glass, and the year was 666.  The problem with dates was noted by Gibbon.  His 46 years gets you 668 but put it in an Islamic calendar converter, a calculation, and you will get exactly 666.  An amazing fit with Revelation 15:2.

A Beginning 

A start, a date, a year, a number.  666  Look for number in Daniel.  It refers to years.  So what happened in the year 666?  Nothing.  Historians are careful about that year.  Dating is difficult without a calendar.  A date is the most common mark on a product.  Its origin.  So what started in 666?  What calendar should we use?

a number 

A Reliable Word 

A consistent interpretation.  Numbers are one of the few things all 60 English versions of the bible agree on.  They all agree on “a thousand years”, 666, “ten horns”, and “seven heads” .  Can we find historical events that have all these numbers in a meaningful way?  Start with the biggest number.  A thousand years.
