 Title

Triangle and square in circle,
as basic source of numerals:
Arabic and Roman.  Description

The three basic planestriangle, square, circleare, of course, products of the systematically moving point. When two diagonals, whose ends are connected by horizontals and verticals, are passed through the center of the circle, the result is the basis of Arabic and Roman numerals, according to A. S. Puschkin
AD=1
ABDC=2
ABECD=3
ABD+AE=4
etc.
Thus meet here:
1. the roots of two numerical systems, and
2. the roots of the forms of art.
If this deepgoing relationship actually exists, we have a certain confirmation of our surmise that phenomena which seem to be fundamentally different on the surface and completely separate from each other derive from one single root.  Designer
