apocalyptic number


from the GNU version of the Collaborative International Dictionary of English

  • adj. the number 666, mentioned in Rev. xiii. 18., in which it is described as the number of the “beast of the earth”. It has been variously interpreted. Some fundamentalist Christians consider it to be the number of the Devil, and avoid or fear objects containing that number.
