Culturally and historically, the Beth-Luis-Nion alphabet of the Ollaves ~ poets and spell-casters, magicians and priests ~ seems closest to our own. Convincing evidence that the English alphabet derives directly from this alphabet, named for its first three letters, Beth, Luis, and Nion, is presented by Robert Graves in his treatise on the poet's art, The White Goddess. Graves points out that the ancient Irish priesthood traveled extensively in Egypt even in the earliest times, and studied in its esoteric mystery schools where the arcana of Number would naturally be taught.

The Beth-Luis-Nion alphabet of thirteen consonants was based on the ancient Lunar Calendar of thirteen twenty-eight day months, and followed the cycle of lunations. Each consonant was assigned a lunar month and given a numerical value. The Summer and Winter Solstices, and the Spring and Fall Equinoxes were important stations in the seasonal cycle, as were the "cross-quarter" days of Imbolc ... Beltane ... Lamas ... and Samhain.
