What is the significance of the "322" in Chapter 322? William Russell imported the society from Germany and so it has been argued the 322 stands for '32 (from 1832), the second chapter, of this German organization. Possibly a chapter 320 and a chapter 321 may exist some- where And 323 is the designation of a room within the Skull & Bones temple at Yale.
Another interpretation is that The Order is descended from a Greek fraternal society dating back to Demosthenes in 322 B.C. This has perhaps some credibility because Bones records are dated by adding 322 to the current year, i.e., records originating in 1950 are dated Anno - Demostheni 2272.
The mystical number 322 on the emblem and its use in the tomb to identify the order's inner sanctum are supposedly either a reference to the date of the death of the famous Greek lawyer and patriot Demosthenes in 322 BC, whose fraternity the skull and bones models itself upon, or a cryptic reference to its German origins.
With a possible connection to the Illuminati.
the number 322 is to be read as the order's founding date 32 i.e. 1832, and its rank as the the second chapter of the German society.
