The kind of reading which interprets numbers had become somewhat externalized during the Latin period where one combined Greek and Latin in the Mystery language, but it could still interpret them. The Apocalyptist uses the special kind of reading which was customary at his time. He writes the number 666 = 400, 200, 60, 6. He writes it with the Hebraic letters: ת taw, ד daleth, ר resh, ס samekh. He writes these letters with their numerical values and one reads them from right to left. After one adds the corresponding vowels to the consonants they give the name of the demon who has this sign, the Sun demon: S o r a d t. At that time Soradt was the name of the Sun demon, and he describes this sign and we know it very well. The Apocalyptist looks upon everything which works against Christianity in the way that Arabism does as an emanation from those spiritual forces which are represented by Soradt the Sun demon.
