Arithmetricha - XXV of Mantegna Tarot

Arithmetricha - XXV


Back in the medieval days, arithmetc didn't solely mean the computation of numbers, but moreso the study of numbers, partially even bordering on numerology. Early European number theory also found its way into arithmetic, as did algebra.

In the Mantegna card, Arithmetricha is depicted as a serene lady counting coins, thus showing the more profane use of arithmetc.
