I haven't followed this discussion closely but...

Is it possible that you are pursueing the lines of inquiry proposed by Robert Temple, who found lines of orientation connecting geodetic points, relating to oracular centres?
One of his triangular figures shows a slightly northeasterly leg of an ancient triangle connecting Dodona in Greece, Metsamor in Asia Minor, and Thebes in Egypt...
Of course, although Temple is a quite respectable scholar and an intriguing and fascinating writer, his work is a bit "far out" for the academic mainstream...
