Another theory about the miasma attached to 13 places its roots in [[NumerologicalMotif numerology]]. Twelve is a multiple of several important numbers -- two, three, and four (six only having significance as two times three). The number thirteen, however, is prime. A number with no connections at all after such a divisible one? That couldn't have been good! By this logic, perhaps 37 is also an unlucky number.

* Played straight with the 13th Legion. It was the one legion Julius Caesar brought to cross the Rubicon with, in do so sparking the beginning of the Roman Civil Wars that would end the Roman Republic. Inverted from the Imperial point of view as it was a loyal legion that helped Caesar and Augustus win their civil wars.
