The Rohonc Codex

  The Rohonc Codex is a Renaissance-era manuscript in an unknown script and language and/or cipher, thus being somewhat comparable to the Voynich Manuscript.   The Hungarian count Gusztáv Batthyány donated the Rohonc Codex to the Hungarian Science Academy in 1838.   It was kept at the city of Rohonc, in western Hungary (now Rechnitz, Austria)  until 1907 - hence the name - and was then moved to Budapest.   Study of the paper on which it is written indicates that it is probably a Venetian paper made in the 1530s.     If you have any questions, contact ctesibos at yahoo dot com  .
