i recognise 100/39.375 = 2.5396825r x 9800 = 24888.888r /14.14141414r = 1760
and we know we are on the right track and you just have to marvel at Petrie's measurements
The oldest preserved measuring rod is a copper-alloy bar which was found by the German Assyriologist Eckhard Unger while excavating at Nippur (pictured below). The bar dates from c. 2650 BC. and Unger claimed it was used as a measurement standard. This irregularly formed and irregularly marked graduated rule supposedly defined the Sumerian cubit as about 518.5 mm or 20.4 inches, although this does not agree with other evidence from the statues of Gudea from the same region, five centuries later
20.4 x 1760 = 35904 / 40 = 897.60
897.60 is the circumference of SH Aubrey discovered by Thom.
The Sumerian cubit was used to design SH.
897.60 / 20.4 = 44
