Hi David,

Found that several years ((4/3^2)^2 Even posted it in a post to Jim.
(4/3)^2 = 16/9:
(16/9)^2 = 256/81 Unfortunately I discount this as a misconception since the Ancient Egyptians did not use it in the manner you describe. Actually {8/9 diameter squared) was the Ancient Egyptian method for finding the 'area of a circle' not the circumference having nothing to do with pi as we employ it. Actually it is a derivative of the arc second circle.

You might give a little more consideration to the Heelstone, which is set at precisely 1/7 arc from true north, according to and quoting from: Temporal Epoch Calculations by James Q. Jacobs in which he states: “I noted that the latitude at Avebury equals the circumference of the earth divided by 7, with an error less than the diameter of Avebury. I later noted a simple geometric relation for Stonehenge's much-publicized Heel Stone alignment. The Heel Stone azimuth is precisely 51.4286° E. of N., also CIR/7. I had questioned the 'Heel Stone—winter solstice sunrise' alignment because the solstice azimuth has dramatically changed, and finding the Heel Stone's precise CIR/7 azimuth added to my doubts. ). I almost dismissed the summer solstice sunrise alignment rationale for the Heel Stone. CIR/7 not only fits the 'simplest explanatory theory' concept, it fits circularity. A 1/7-azimuth alignment in a circle makes more sense than apparent, time-varying solar motion. After all, one-seventh is a constant reference, not a moving target”
.
Regards,
Jacob
