Firstly , I began to think about "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" phrase to solve the Shugborough Code. This phrase is believed that constructed in Latin. While the phrase "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" is a nominal phrase with no finite verb, it is a perfectly acceptable construction in Latin. Pseudohistorians unaware of that aspect of Latin grammar have concluded that the sentence is incomplete, missing a verb, and have speculated that it represents some esoteric message concealed in a (possibly anagrammatic) code.

"ET IN ARCADIA EGO" appears as the title of two paintings by Nicolas Poussin. The Shepherd’s Monument’s relief is adapted from an engraving of Poussin's second version. But it is a reverse copy of the painting.

It is said that Poussin is known to have sealed his correspondants with his personal insignia containing the motto "Tenet Confidentiam" or "Keeper of Secrets".
Which secret kept by Poussin ?

I thought that "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" phrase is the starting point to help solving the mystery.

Nicolas Poussin's painting (Les Bergers d'Arcadie II) contains 4 human figures. There are 3 shepherd crooks in the painting and Poussin is painted them "IV" shape. Roman number "IV" equals number 4. What was the purpose of pointing of number 4 ?

I considered number 4 and I studied "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" phrase.

"ET IN ARCADIA EGO" phrase contains 4 Roman numerals.

The symbolism of number 4

1. The name of God (Yahweh) is 4 letters (Tetragrammaton) :
    YHWV in Hebrew, YHWH or YHVH or JHWH or JHVH in English, JHWH in German

2. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (in the Book of Revelation) :
    War, Famine, Pestilence, Death

3. There are 4 human blood groups :
    A, B, O, AB

4. Greek classical elements :
    fire, air, water, earth

5. 4 seasons :
    spring, summer, autumn, winter

6. 4 parts of a day :
    night, morning, afternoon, evening

7. 4 cardinal directions :
    north, south, east, west

8. The four canonical Gospels, which are attributed to the Four Evangelists:
    Gospel of Matthew, Gospel of Mark, Gospel of Luke, Gospel of John

9. There are 4 basic states of matter :
    solid, liquid, gas, and plasma

You can add more items to the list.

Roman numerals are
"I , C" , "D" and I" in "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" phrase (There are 4 Roman numerals).

The number values of Roman numerals "I” , “C” , “D” and “I" :

I - C - D - I = 1 - 100 - 500 - 1

and , the first characters of the numbers :

1 - 100 - 500 – 1 = 1151

Number 1151 equals Roman numerals "

I replaced "ICDI" characters in "ET IN ARCADIA EGO" phrase with "MCLI" characters :


The value of "ET MN ARCALIA EGO" phrase in Hebrew Gematria is

The Discovery 1 : There is a link between Nicolas Poussin's painting and number 866.
