A fourfold statue because of the 4 seasons. Some form it having a key in the right hand, as a beginning of time and an opening of the year and [its] door. Others [form it] holding in the right hand 300, and in the left 65, just like the year. From this Longinus insists on interpreting him as Aionoarios, as if "father of the eon."[1]
