A Dating Tool 

A common year.  666 of the Gregorian calendar, which didn’t start until 1582, will be a different year in a different calendar.  The common year for the Julian calendar was 44 BC.  622, the year of the Hijra, would be 666 in the Julian calendar.  That does require a calculation and not a count as stated in some bibles.
