Bacon's Signature Ciphers in Shakespeare -41- us Cyphers


11)  A line count of 33 is also found in the Prologue of The Life of Henry the Fift. It’s worth a mention because the line has the word “Cyphers” in it as well as the word “Figure’ nearby. It can suggest that we can be “Cyphers” in the sense of having numerical names. It seems to say that the writer, at least, is a ‘cypher’ and he’s associated this claim with the number 33.

The word “Accompt”, though outwardly meaning a “narrative” accords with “Figure” and “Cyphers” in its other usage as a term related to “reckoning” or “counting”.
