Anagram grid

anagram_from_board4

I have a piece of paper on my office bulletin board with these anagram (anagramatical?) words on it.  Unfortunately, I do not remember where I got it. My memory seems to recall that it was back when I was doing some calligraphy, and I needed some phrases to put to ink.

I have been told the words are Latin, but have not verified this.

The beauty of this work is that the words read forward, backward, and both horizontally and vertically.  I think there are 16 different wordsin this matrix or grid.

Are there others like this?

    That’s too much for my simple mind. I am still trying to figure out the difference between and acronym and acrostic.

  2. That is awesome!!! Never seen one before.

  3. Thanks Heidi.
    It is just something I have kept around for years. I wish I knew if they were real words in Latin.
    Keep reviewing those movies!

  5. Hi Flash
    Nice meeting you at the Tweetup. I update my blog twice a week. I think I have a couple more anagram topics in mind.
    Thanks

  6. Bob,
    Thanks for sharing this. It turns out that there is a wikipedia page on this very square. It is called the Sator Square. It has some neat translations.
