I propose that the crown refers to Regulus, since
Regulus means 'little king'. The two other crowned
nymphs are in Leo and in Cancer. These are roughly
in the right area of the zodiac. (I lack a detailed
explanation why they are where they are).

The two arches with the star on top in my opinion
indicate the culmination of the star Regulus.
This is the point where it is highest above the
horizon, due south. The arches indicate the path
of the star. Culmination occurs in Libra, i.e.
when one particular degree of Libra rises. Which
degree exactly depends on the century and on the
geographic latitude of the observer.

There is quite a bit more in the zodiac illustrations
that makes sense, but I am aware of the Rorschach
effect so I do realise that some of it is perhaps
only imaginary. I still need to figure out what.

Dana, I have to apologise for not having responded
in detail to your proposed decryption of the MS.
I must say that I share Jorge Stolfi's view, in
the sense that you haven't provided us with anything
concrete. (Which is in a sense what he meant with
'not falsifiable')
Please do have a look at the criteria for an 
acceptable solution on Gabriel Landini's web page.
While these may not be perfect, it should give you
an idea of what you would have to do to convince
others of the correctness of your solution.

Kind regards, Rene
