Well, have you seen my "Chinese theory" page? Perhaps the correct
reading of <otaldy> (as the VMS author intended it) is <chang>, but
one of those <otaldy>s is <chàng> and the other is <cháng>...

I have no satisfactory theory for what the "zodiac" diagrams and the
numphs are supposed to be. If they indeed represent the zodiac signs,
why do they all have 30 "stars"? Why are Aries and Taurus split in
two?

Even the zodiac symbols at the center are a bit suspect; it is
possible (although, I admit, unlikely) that the central circles were
originally empty, and the signs were added later, by someone who just
guessed they were related to the zodiac. Or perhaps the guess was made
by the VMS author himself, as he copied the diagrams from some other
book.

If the nymphs are real or imaginary individuals (not just decoration),
then the labels are likely to be their names; in which case it is not
that strange to see repetitions.

> okaldy 2
> okeoly 2
> okalar 2
> oteolar 2
> okeey ary 2
> otaly 2
> okal 2
> otaraldy 2

I hadn't noticed that there were so many repetitions in the Zodiac.
Very strange! Why is no label repeated three times? Is there any
pattern to these repetitions (such as position of labels in
diagram, etc?)

I wish I knew the answer....

If the language is Chinese, this is somewhat unlikely (although the
<y> or <dy> could be tone marks, and I believe that in Chinese
there are some rules that say that tone X changes to tone Y when
it comes before a word with tone Z.)

On the other hand, if the language is Chinese then those resemblances
are not surprising, and they do not mean anything: "ching" and "chi"
are not related...
