Although these coincidences are interesting they could not have designed it with accuracy based on your model. If we take your value for the QC S slope then we could not accurately pinpoint the birth year of Saint Spyridon. A small error in angle trnaslates to many years in alignment epoch. Also the center line dispacement of the axis can be computed 2 different ways based on Petrie's data. One uses the distance from plumb-line below the roof's apex. One value is therefore 25.29" and the other 25.19". But if we use the 8 1/2 palms value we have 25.03". This is too short.
