Image no. 1 shows the parchment slightly off alignment with a perpendicular grid.
Image no. 2 shows the correction of the parchment to align better with the grid.
Image no. 3 shows the result of laying a straight edge over the line pointing towards the text and seeing it cross over the "+" sign in the text.
Image no. 4 shows taking the straight edge and laying over the two "+" signs in the right areas of the text.
Image no. 5 shows the alignment of the image to a horizontal line to thus measure the angle produced by the two lines.
Image no. 6 shows the measurement of this angle to be exactly 60degrees. Considering the common knowledge that an equilateral triangle produces 3 interior angles of 60 degrees, finding such a measurement in the parchment is at least enough to establish reason to test the theory that one might be revealed in the document.
Image no. 7 shows the result of laying a straight edge over the last "+" sign and back to the origin of the first line, using the interior angle of the "device" there. The measurement of the angles produced here are 90 degrees and 30 degrees, OR, exactly one-half of an equilateral triangle. If an equilateral triangle was not being suggested thus far by the maker of the document, then they had gone to great lengths to unwittingly make one available in the document this way.
Image no. 8 labels the 30 degree angle and orients the image back to the horizontal plane.
Image no. 9 demonstrates what occurs when one duplicates the first 30-60-90 triangle and flips it horizontally to produce an equilateral 60-60-60 degree triangle.
With knowledge of equilateral triangular geometry present, while taking one's straight edge and bisecting the opposite 60 angle and making it perpendicular with its opposite side, it is noted in image 10 that it overlaps a dot next to a letter in the lower left.
Image no. 11 shows the line produced by these two points.
Image 12 shows the angle measurements that have been produced so far, but also shows how the center point of the triangle is produced.
While testing the accuracy of this new center point, in Image 13 we train the point of compass on the intersection near the "R" and the pencil point on the "+" sign where the first angle was produced.
Image 14 shows the line created by laying the straight edge over the center point of the triangle and circle and the lower point of the triangle.
Image 15 shows the extension of line which produced the first 90 degree angle to extend past the circle (which I should have done earlier)
mage 16 shows connecting the right side points at the intersections with the circle.
Image 17 shows connecting the top point and lower left point at their intersections at the circle. Also is an arrow showing how this last line crosses through the remaining "+" sign in the parchment.
Image 18 shows the connection of the last two points.
