Bad news:
Medieval scholars judged Gibbs' hypothesis to be not novel. Gibbs' work was criticized as patching together already-existing scholarship and providing a highly speculative and incorrect translation; Lisa Fagin Davis, director of the Medieval Academy of America, stated that Gibbs' decipherment "doesn’t result in Latin that makes sense."[83][84]

Well, there you go!! Not such a simple solution, after all. And actually, not so disappointed since there is still mystery involved :D
