APPENDIX B.

OF THE SQUARE AND CIRCLE CONTAINED. (1) When the perimeter of the Square is 1270, that of the circle is 998, and

 1270 = NumfioV - The Bridegroom. 998 = Numfh - The Bride, the ‘Korh kosmou’ of certain Gnostics. 2268 = IhsouV o anqrwpoV.

(2) When the square is 656, the circle is 515, and the square lozenge within the square is 464.

 656 = MessiaV - The Messiah. 515 = ParqenoV - The Virgin. 464 = ˘H Mhthr - The Mother.
464 + 515 is the Gunh hliou as well as ˘H parqenoV mhthr.
656 + 515 is 1171, the number of the PansofoV, the second Profundity of the Gnostic aeons.
656 + 464 is 1120, which is the TridunameiV of the Coptic books, and of the Gnostic system generally.
656 is 464 + 192 = ˘H mhthr Mariam.

(3) When the Square is 1224 - the circle is 961 (or 31˛). These, as already shewn, are ta teich and ˘H kainh ˘Ierousalhm - the Heavenly city and its peribolus. But the joint number 1224 + 961 is the TeicoV Kuriou - 2185, and the lozenge within the square measures 866 - Adwnai.

Investigation of the Cabala.

(4) If the measure of the square be 2185, the circle becomes 1716-1717, and the inner square or lozenge 1545.
2185 = ˘O aiwn tou Qeou (teicoV kuriou).
1545 = ˘O Tektwn - The Builder - title of Christ.
And 2185 - 1545 = 640 = The Kingdom of Peace, which is basileia eirhnhV.
The circle, taken at the lesser valuation 1716, stands for h yuch = The Soul.
