Carp and Hot Water

More “ok-” “ca-” possibilities. Since there are very many Latin words beginning with “ca-” there is a lot of scope for proposing plausible translations for any VMs word beginning “ok-“. More confidence would be afforded by accumulating a large number of plausible or convincing matches.

Hot water coming out of the pipe(s) on f77r? The left pipe may be spewing cold water (blue). (Also note caldarium = hot bath, cantharus = water pipe)

Conjecture: “okoe” = “calda”

The two carp on f70v2. (But this could equally well be a star name.)

Conjecture: “okoeae” = “carpa”

    and in regard to the latin “carpe” – to seize.

    Ibn Arabi places an epithet “he who seizes” al-Qabid in one of the sections of his (or rather Burckhardt’s) diagram of correspondences. The character of the “seizer” is suitably martial. I’ll have to go and look up whether it’s assigned to March.

    No, but it is assigned to the planet Mars.

      Well, that’s a nice coincidence 🙂 So “okoeae” could equally well be “carpe” and make as much sense.
