When you study the link given by bobpursely, make a note of

Albrecht Dürer's magic square, probably the most famous 4by4 magic square.

I especially like how, in the last row, he was able to insert the date of his "Melancolia" engraving as

1 15 14 4 to stand for 1514 AD

A being the first letter of the alphabet and D being the 4th letter, with 1514 the year
