Re: Folio start gallows

One other idea might beif you had this start;

foreoiy qokeey

maybe double letters can be switched on and off;;

Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol La, Ti Qu.

fore si quo qui ?

oteieo daiio eety ykees he cg


otio Deo est ti exigi

Of course hopefully you know Latin better than me!

Re: Folio start gallows

The only thing I can think of is a short hand for a formulaic start of a paragraph or sentence. Like Ovid's" Praebeurat dictis,". "Such things having been said" but at the same time it probably doubles as a letter maybe "P"?

similar code

Hi, I think Edward Elgar's "Dora Bella cypher is similar to the Voynich. My version has 24 consonants 5 punctuation marks and 58 vowels. (ae) m e3 i2 (ou) e1, r i2, y, (ae) n ,e3, a1, a2, e3, g, e2,e2,e1,m, m,e2, a2, i1,e3,(i1 ?) n,p r,e2,r,e1,i1, i2, y, u1,i2,",e2,e2,",e1,? a1, r, e2, n, e2, e1, s,...

Re: On folio 1r

Rich Please bear with me; The possible "Alpha Carina" is important because it's common name is Canopus, the rudder of the ship Argo Navis. Canopus is a city at the mouth of the Nile. The name means at least to Strabo per Allen's book "but, of yesterday" I think that would mean everything eventually ...

Re: On folio 1r

Hi Rich, I am using the same EVA from page 245 of Kennedy and Churchill's book "courtesy of G. Landini" I agree it's too hit and miss but I found something finally. I took the 204 letters before the signature and tried first letter-last letter, second letter-second to last etc. and found Alpha Carin...

Re: On folio 1r

This actually came from a dream and who am I to question a dream?

For the "signature" ydaraishy, I got the solution (from the dedication on a Shakespeare poem)

Your Honor's In All Duty,
S(un) RAY

I like it! There are a couple sun faces in there.

Re: On folio 1r

Continuing on; I play bass, so I saw a musical idea. The signature "YDARAISHY" could be a scale. Key note, Do, Fa, Re, La, Mi, Sol, Thi, Key note. Then the 17x12 block could be someone playing piano scales. C,C,D,E,F,G,A,B,CC,B,A,G,F,E,D,C C#,C#,D#,F,F#,G#A#,C,C#,C#,C,A#,G#,F#F,D#,C#. D D# E F F# G ...

Re: On folio 1r

I tried using the signature for a key. There are 213 letters counting the apostrophy and asterick or smudge. 213-9=204 and 17x12=204. There are 9 letters in the signature, so I made the odd numbered letters of the 17 per line add to the key. The first line is; FACH YSYK ALAR ATAI I Y-D-A-R-A-I-S-H-Y...

Re: On folio 1r

Another possibility is that the author was disguising his code with Greek shorthand.

FA CH YS YK AL AR AT AI I

Could be;

Phi, chi, upsy, kappa, beta (?) I-I or pi (?)
