The SATOR Square

A Magic Square ring in Hebrew. The SATOR Square is a magic square in letters and words that was also found at Pompeii. Used as a talisman, the magic square wards off evil spirits. Was it carved into the cave as a protection because Galamus in ancient times was known as an entrance to the underworld? Here we see it on the back of the "head of Dagobert". On the Galamus sculpture, the head appears to be singing or chanting. PAX or Peace 681 is from the parchments. In numerology PAX = 681, a reference to the Templar/Masonic science of numerology. "PAX" is written in large letters at the Galamus hermitage. "Magic word squares The practical magic of Abramelin (found in both Book III of the French text, and Book IV of the German original) centers around a set of talismans composed of magic word squares. These are similar to traditional magic squares, though the latter are usually composed of numbers, while Abramelin's squares contain letters. Commonly word squares are used as puzzles or as teaching aids."
