According to Josephus (Life, chapter 45), there were 204 cities and towns in the Galilee. (Whiston translated this as 240, but that's apparently an error.)


Some give 204 as the number of attendees of the First Zionist Congress, though others differ.


According to some sources (including Wikipedia), 204 Jews were deported from Venice during the Holocaust.

    Was it? I liked the part of it that answered the question. (The rest of it was good too, but unnecessary.)
