COMMENTS

The magic sum is 34. See Figure 1.2 on page 10 in Maya Ahmed's PhD thesis. This magic square is found in a Jaina inscription of the twelfth or thirteenth century in the city of Khajuraho, India (as mentioned in Maya Ahmed's thesis).
The inscription is in the Parsvanatha Temple and may date back to its construction, estimated at 954.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 24 2018
