Does anyone have any idea what A.A.A. stands for in this extract from Theophilus Schweighardt's Roscrucian text 'Pandora sextae Aetatis...' (Salzburg, 1617)?

I suspect it's 'aurum, argentum, aes' = 'gold, silver, bronze' but I am willing to be corrected.

Erik Mertens informs me that

In his work Speculum Sophicum Rhodo-Stavroticum on page 16, Daniel Mögling uses the phrase Arrige, Arrige, Aures. My latin is poor, but I think it could make sense in the “Pandora” text.

Yes that seems to make good sense. 'Prick up your ears'.

Thanks,
