Are there any special meanings that "501" has?

數字501有個別的含意嗎?

I saw a lot of books titled with 501 such as 501 movie directors or 501 artists but I can't understand why. I think in Chinese a number of five or ten times like 10, 50, or 100 is more common in saying.

我看到很多書用501作為書名的一部分,像是501位電影導演或是501位藝術家,但我不懂為什麼。
我認為在中文裡,五或十的倍數像是10、50或100是更常見的。

Hope I can find a good answer!
