While 666 is called the "number of the beast" in most manuscripts of Revelation 13:18,[1] a fragment of papyrus 115 gives the number as 616.
They both have merit for being right and there are a lot of blogs devoted to this subject. I think that the powers that be have hedged their bets on both these numbers. You have probably seen the logos that have 666 in them.

What do we find for 616?

  I think that number might be used more than we think.

In DrudgeReport today they had a link to  an article about how Satanists plan to celebrate on 6/6/16 for 666 but maybe they are celebrating 616. The article was pretty creepy. 

A statement from the temple explains the fun in more detail:
The Pentagram is a star with five points. Using GPS technology we will place the five points of the star so that the Pentagram will encompass your entire city. When all of the points are in place, the Pentagram is completed. Drawing this symbol around your city represents a solemn promise from us, the Satanic Temple of Los Angeles. We will stand with the good people of the City of Lancaster and struggle for our constitutional right to individual liberty, freedom of expression and the separation of church and state in your community.
Members also plan to deliver their Bible, so to speak, The Seven Tenets, to Lancaster city leaders. 
I think I would stay out of that area on that date. :)
It seems that XlC is used in logos also. Here are some examples.
