‘Madits’ are the things Max said (‘Max dits’) about the treasure hunt. He answered searcher’s questions on a Minitel service (an early form of internet.)
In Le Figaro Magazine (published on Saturday July 26 , 1997 , pages 72-73) Max gave the following summary about the 600 clue:
The visual of this enigma is above all a symbolic image.
The metal that was used to make the Fibula de Préneste has no importance for this treasure hunt. What is important is what this item means and represents in terms of reference.
” Al-mar ” is a word of foreign origin. Its meaning, once found – and symbolically associated with that of the Fibula of Préneste – provides you with an explanation as to how to decipher the letters that form the textual enigma.
The angle that the hand and the key form with the central axis of the visual does not matter, nor does the length of the key.
