Two questions that I hope someone can give me info about...

1) What is the origin of the association between Heron and the
Heronian mean which appears in the Moscow Papyrus

2) Is there any such thing as the Heronian mean of three numbers? and
if so does it have any geometric interpretation.

Thanks to any who can provide insight.
