4, 22, 78, 199, 424, 814, 1410 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The same rules as for A201126 apply, but with the magic conditions for both diagonals of the number square removed.

is a semi-magic square. The mid-side bricks with heights 6, 5, 9, 8 form a wall around the central hole with bottom height 1. Water poured upon the square will fill the central pond until overflowing via the left brick of height 5. Thus 4 units of water will be retained.


Cf. A201126 (water retention of magic squares).
