Quote 'Well as long as you cite ratios, the absolute standard of measurement is irrelvant. Talking about meters, cubits, and yards can be very problematic since we don't know when much of the stonework was achieved and so we don't know what measurement standard was used, but using ratios only looks at relative measurements and not the absolute standard of measurement.'

All I can say is to disagree strongly with this statement. There is a mountain of material on ancient measures however one thing I do agree with is the value of ratios.

And one of the best ratios is 24 to 25. Can be seen in Saxon measure 12.672 inches is to 13.2 inches. And also in Roman and Greek measures Roman 11.664 inches to Greek 12.15 inches.

Again Royal cubit to standard cubit 25 digits is to 24 digits 0.825 inches.

Best
