[1] See notes on 42 and 1,260 in this appendix.

[2] This duration of time is synonymous with that length which is called 1,260 days.  See also notes on 3 ½ in this appendix.

[3] This duration is also called “a time, and times, and half a time” (12:14), which I believe is another way of saying 3 ½: a time (1) and (+) times (2) and (+) half a time (½) = 3 ½.  See notes on 3 ½ in this appendix.
