Cipher 34: Manual

Many of my ciphers were computerised. By contrast, this one was created manually and could have appeared 400 years ago, long before Blaise Pascal produced the first mechanical calculator.

One Response to Cipher 34: Manual

  1. Imagine that kind of puzzle appeared really 400 years ago, in another culture, using different symbols for numbers, etc.

    Would our current scientists be able to recognize and to solve this cipher? Or would they just superficially speculate on some religious “meaning” of those symbols in that culture?

    Or, from another viewpoint: Maybe such a 400 years old puzzle actually exists, but nobody has yet recognized it as such! 😉
