Alfa-magic square

 

The Origin of Tree Worship is a scientific book (published in 1887) about the habits of

the Druids. Lee Sallows (analyzing runes as amateur) discovered in the book a formula written in runes. When Lee had decoded the formula he discovered an impure 3x3 magic square and he firstly could not imagine what was special about this magic square. Lee wrote the digits of the magic square down in runes. He counted the characters of the words in runes and put the results in a new square. This square happened to be magic just like the original magic square. Such a magic square is defined as an alfa-magic square. See below an alfa-magic square in english language.
