Apollonian Alphabet

Apollonian
 

 

 
Apollonius of Tyre
 
 
Possibly the oldest values assigned to the Beth-Luis-Nion alphabet were of Apollonian origin, a period when the Irish had come very heavily under the influence of the Greeks.  If the order of the vowels even in antiquity followed the order in which we still learn to recite them as children, an idea with strong historic antecedents, then A -- E -- I -- O -- U, would have the corresponding values 1 -- 2 -- 3 -- 4 -- 5. The 13 original consonants would then follow the seasonal cycle of the alphabet of trees, with each assigned its corresponding lunar month, while the remaining 6 consonants, much later additions to our alphabet, will be assigned values upon similar magick, philosophic, philologic and historic lines.
