666 in the mirror
666 in roman numberals, uses every single numeral (from 1 to 500) one time.
666 in roman numberals=DCLXVI
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/666_(number) )
That’s pretty interesting. To say the least.
Signs in the mirror
Roman numerals used to look differently in ancient times.
“Although Roman numerals are now written with letters of the Roman alphabet, they were originally independent symbols. The Etruscans, for example, used I, ??, X, ??⋔, 8, ??⊕, for I, V, X, L, C, and M, of which only I and X happened to be letters in their alphabet.” (Some signs aren’t visible on wordpress. Look in the wikipedia link).
V used to look like “??”Λ (an upside down V)=mirroring/reversal.
I and X looks the same either way. (=mirrored without anyone even noticing).
C=100=century used to be scribed with an “8”=infinity symbol.
M=1000=Millennium used to look like an “??⊕” (a circle with a “+” inside). A wheel of time? A sun wheel? A sun cross?
“Meanwhile, 1000 was a circled or boxed X: and by Augustinian times was partially identified with the Greek letter phi. Over time, the symbol changed to ??Ψ and ↀ??. The latter symbol further evolved into ∞??, then ⋈??, and eventually changed to M under the influence of the Latin word mille “thousand”.” (Some signs aren’t visible on wordpress. Look in the wikipedia link).
1000=∞(rotated 8)=infinity symbol=⋈hourglass.
If one was nine.
“In some early biblical manuscripts, the number (of the beast) is cited as 616.”
The number 1 is a reversal/mirroring of the number 9 (number nine, number nine…). 9 turned upside down becomes a 6. 616=696=666. Back to square 9/6/6/1/1/9.
Wikipedia: “The Roman Numeral for 616, DCXVI, has exactly one occurrence of all symbols except for L whose value is less than 1000 (D=500, C=100, X=10, V=5, I=1).”
The roman numeral for 50, is missing=50=half of one hundred=50/100=50 percent, or half.
X+I=11 or 9 (9 or 11), depending on where you put the I.
Roman numerals are reversed. (mirrored).
A one before a ten equals a nine. (IX=9)
Roman numerals uses mirroring. Or,,,
Maybe it’s normal numbers (1-9) that are the actual mirrors.
Don’t forget, that Roman numbers don’t even have a zero.
