I want my bibliography to start at another number, not at 1.

I saw this solution here that works with articles, but I am using revtex4-1 ... (and I stole their minimal example :-))

\documentclass{revtex4-1}

\begin{document}


Let us cite \cite{a1},  \cite{a2} and \cite{a3}.

\begin{thebibliography}{99}
\makeatletter
\addtocounter{\@listctr}{8}
\makeatother

\bibitem{a1}
A1
\bibitem{a2}
A2
\bibitem{a3}
A3
\end{thebibliography}

\end{document}

Would be great if you could help me with this.

    You could try with \addtocounter{NAT@ctr}{8} instead of \addtocounter{\@listctr}{8}, but I'm not sure how safe it is. – campa Oct 24 '18 at 10:26

Using "thebibliography" the counter name for the revtex4-1 class is:

\addtocounter{NAT@ctr}{8}
