Dr Sir, May I venture to suggest that the sacred Assyrian Mamit may have been symbolized by the archaic sacred triangle <diagram of a 3,4,5 triangle with attendant equations>

Trans: Soc. Bibl. archy. p.54 Magic Knots

Jews still knot the <hebrew> fringes 5 double K. + 10 single ones + (7,9,11,13 = 40) twistings vide Mills British Jews p. 19

Errat. p. 51 l.7 infra "on earth who is great."

p.58 Masi = <heb> query <heb> doorpost still used by Jews (Deut. vi. 9) for inscribing sentences.

p.73. were the seven spirits." Those that animated the seven planets?

p 211 – l."48" rammikui not <heb> Equus? but <heb> javelin?

I hope you’ll excuse these suggestions from Yrs faithfully
