R' always appears before P'.

 

R=Q

P=U

 

*' can exist in pairs and it does not appear very often so it is not a space.

 

X' appears very often.

X=SPACE

 

M exists only from the 1 st to the middle of the 3 rd line.

G exists only from the end of the 3 rd line to the middle of the 6 th line.

C exists only from the end of the 6 th line to the middle of the 10 th line.

Z exists only from the end of the 10 th line to the middle of the 13 th line.

N exists only from the middle of the 13 th line after there are no more Zs to the end of the 14 th line.

B exists only from the beginning of the 15 th line to the end of the 17 th line.

Maybe they all represent the same letter because a homophonic cipher means the same letter is substituted in many ways.

 

If MGCZNB=A

 

Q' appears very often.

Q=E

V' appears very often.

E' appears very often

U' appears very often.

If V=R, E=S, U=T.

F appears very often.

I appears very often.

If F=I, I=O.

T' appears quite often.

W' appears quite often.

If T=N, W=M.

O' appears quite often.

Y' appears quite often.

If Y=P, O=H.

S' and *' appear fairly often.

If S=C, *=L.

J' and K' appear fairly often.

If J=G, K=V.

L' and H' appear fairly often.

If L=D, H=Z

Letters left: D and A.

If D=F, A=B

o frati dissi che per cento milia

perigli siete giunti a loccidente

a questa tanto picciola vigilia

 

de nostri sensi che del rimanente

non vogliate negar lesperienza

diretro al sol del mondo senza gente

 

considerate la vostra semenza

fati non foste a viver come bruti

ma per seguir virtute e canoscenza

 

li miei compagni fecio si aguti

con questa orazion picciola al cammino

che a pena poscia li avrei ritenuti

 

e volta nostra poppa nel mattino

dei remi facemmo ali al folle volo

sempre acquistanfo dal lato namcimo

 

tutte le stelle gia de laltro polo

vedea la notte e l nostro tanto basso

che non surgea fuor del mario iuolo

 

cinque volre racceso e tanto casso

lo lume era di sotto da la luna

poi che ntrati eravam ne lalto passo

 

quando napparve una montagna bruna

per la distanza e parvemi alta tanto

quanto veduta non avea alcuna

 

noi ci allegrammo e tosto torno in pianto

che de la nova terra un turbo nacque

e percosse del legno il primo canto

 

tre volte il fe girar con tutte lacquer

a la quarta levar la poppa in suso

e la prora ire in giu comaltrui piacque

infin che l mar fu sopra noi richiuso

 

* la parola in codice e equator

 

It is a poem named Canto XXVI de L'Inferno, and is written in Italian.

* The two spaces were probably put to show that this part is the codeword.

Translation of last line: The coded word and equator
