This famous manuscript (named as Codex Pr*nsis) is written by an unknown author. The math. historian believes that the author's name is encrypted under the following mysterious phrase:
(5)o(7)(1) (7)o(+3)(+5)o(1) (12)o(1)(+8)(14)(+10)
=
J o h n H o r t o n C o n w a y
o = origin, n = 1, m = 2, ell = 3, k = 4, j = 5, etc
p = +1, q = +2, r = +3, s = +4, t = +5, etc.
