A Julian Calendar 

Hijri marked the beginning of Islam in 622 of the Gregorian calendar which didn’t start until 1582.  Before that, the Julian calendar was in effect.  The common year, 44 BC, has the Hijri in 666 of the Julian calendar.  Most bible translations calculate this number.  A sea of glass mingled with fire is an interesting fit.

a number 

A Year 

A date, a beginning, a start, a mark.  Nearly every product sold today has a date marking its beginning.  The word “number” in Daniel refers to years.  Historians are good at ignoring what may have happened in the year 666 but we do know Islam was getting ready to attack Constantinople about that time.

a mark 

A Beginning 

A start.  A date code is the most common mark on a product and “no man might buy or sell” without it.  What started in 666?  What calendar?  44 BC marked the beginning of the Julian calendar.  622 of the Gregorian calendar would be 666 of the Julian calendar.  It marked the beginning of Islam.
