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. |

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 31²). 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.

(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.
