Diocletian (Roman Emperor)
244 C.E. – 311 C.E., Roman Emperor 284 C.E. – 286 C.E., contested until 285 C.E. The Roman Empire split during his reign between West and East. He remained Emperor in the East until 305 C.E. Constantine rallied against him and later became emperor. Decisions to persecute, and kill Christians were remarkably all attributed to Constantine’s opponents, in particular, the Christian martyrs during Emperor
Diocletian’s reign around the year 287 C.E. Since Constantine’s enemies were the 2 enemies of God, it was easy to demonize them and their followers, and rally the people against them.

Reformed pastor in The Hague, The Netherlands (1894-1942). In November 1940, a few months after Germany had occupied the Netherlands, he wrote a booklet with the number 666  as its sole title on the cover and with as subtitle inside: The number of a human being.  He was arrested and sent to a concentration camp. He did not survive it. The Nazi’s had no difficulty recognizing Hitler in the guise of Nero in his book. This example shows that in arduous times apocalyptic texts become activated to create endurance and patience to wait for divine intervention, when human help seems to be far away.
