I’m investigating multiple options for the numbers at the moment. However, none so far are compelling to write much about.
The first line of enquiry is that Saturn moves through the houses of the zodiac approximately every 2.5 years. 1,100 divided by 2.5 happens to be 440 which is the baselength of the pyramid. This isn’t especially interesting as the 2.5 is very approximate.
The next line is to look at something similar to the Babylonian System A calculations for planetary motion:
“Concerning Saturn. 4,25 (265) years corresponds to 4,16 (256) first appearances and to 9 rotations13 and to 54,0 (3240) degrees. “

Reducing this by 3 we are still 20 degrees in error but the fewer rotations perhaps 3 would yield approximately 88 years. Again 88 x 5 =440 so maybe something here but it’s approximate and very fuzzy.
