# Ancient Area Unit Numbers are Revealing Ancient Area Unit Numbers are Revealing. Below are units of length. These numbers were then used in squared form by ancient builders. The second internal link shows my source of the measures.  Area measure was used in other ways in past ages. Knowledge of this still survives if you look hard enough.  First, notice below, by mathematics English yard of 3 feet should actually be 2.979… feet. Squaring this slightly smaller figure given below equals 8.88 square feet.  Thus, two of the area unit numbers use repeated numbers. They are:

(1) Palestinian cubit square of 4.44 square feet.

(2) The mathematically true (not rounded up)  figure for the English square yard as 8.88 square feet.

Repeated numbers have made their way into our culture in other ways.  Witness the popularity of “888 product sales in business.”  As a matter of fact all of the 9 basic digits are repeated  for selling. Repeated numbers make reference to  the 3 x 3 number square.  It contains an infinity of hidden number codes based on repeated numbers. Scope out “infinity” on DSOworks.com

Also notable: The Commandments of the Hebrew Torah are also numbered by ancient measures: There are 248 positively stated commandments. The 365 negatively stated ones tell you what not to do.  The internal link immediately below explains the +5 discrepancy for the 243 numbers that define the Roman pace and the positive commandments.

### Basic Units of Ancient Measure

1.2165… feet = 1 remen
1.2165 feet x √2 = 1.72… feet – one royal cubit
1.2165 feet x √3 = 2.107… feet- one Palestinian cubit
1.2165 feet x  √4 = 2.43… feet – one Roman pace
1.2165 feet x  √5 = 2.72… feet – one megalithic yard etc., up to…(copied from internal link above).

1.2165 feet x √6  = 2.979…feet – It was rounded up to 3 feet.
1.2165 feet x √8 = 3.44 square feet

1.2165 feet x √9 = 3.65… feet

### Ancient Area Unit Numbers Expressed in Square Feet

One remen squared = 1.48 square feet.
One royal cubit squared = 3 square feet.
One Palestinian cubit squared = 4.44 square feet
One Roman pace squared = 6 square feet.
One megalithic yard squared = 7.4 square feet.
The 1.2165…foot remen x square root of six  (as 1.2165 feet x √6)  = 2.979…feet)  2.979… ² =8.88 square feet. Of course the British yard is rounded up to a full three feet. When that is done, it makes the square yard equal to 9 square feet. Yardstick based on the full 3 foot long British yard.

Repeated numbers also found their way into gematria. That’s the ancient equation of numbers and letters.  Damascus, when spelled with Hebrew letters equals 444. (Link is below) Dalet (right to left) is 4, (mem) is 40, shin is 300, kuf is 100 = 444.  In this manner, Damascus makes direct reference to the Palestinian square cubit of 4.44 feet. It is well known that “Jesus” spelled with Greek letters equates with 888 by gematria. That makes reference to the shorter “English” square yard  as 8.88 square feet.
