This third volume is based on the transcription of Amadi’s third volume, translated into English.

The basis of this volume, titled poly-steganography, is formed by multiple examples (πολυ) of hiding written content (γραφω) inside other cover text (στεγω). The volumes of Trithemius are discussed but also many other cipher subjects and examples are shown. In a nutshell we present the following subjects:

steganography, geometric forms and the vowels, wheel with alphabet, transposition table, alphabetical biblical references.

Thirty wheels with letters of the alphabet and Italian terms from areas such as: teologia, philosophia, medicina, scienze, divinatione, poesia, rethorica, dialectica, gramatica, methodica, historica, ritmica, aritmetica, musica, astronomia, geometria, geodosia, geomoria, mecanica, morali,  agricultura venacio coquinaria, theatrica, arti manuali, architetura, pictura, and more.
