A circle with the sun above, ‘oriens’, a dragon in the middle, and a moon below ‘occidens’. All this is ‘g’.
In the middle of the page two sigils or symbols, notes: ‘Seals of the fixed stars, notes 1953, fol. 97.’
At the bottom of the page a magic square, not with numbers but letters, presumably greek: four times a ‘Nu’ (?), a one (?), maybe a Zeta (?), an Eta (e), a nine (?), and in the middle a dark circle and possibly a Xi (?). Notes: ‘Magic square for Divination. After Lane, Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians”. “Magic in modern times”, II-241.’
