Today's word is quincunx, spelled Q-U-I-N-C-U-N-X.

Quincunx is a noun that means an arrangement of five things in a square or rectangle with one at each corner and one in the middle. Here is the word used in a sentence by William Dalrymple from The New York Review of Books.

"The towers of Angkor Wat - shaped in a quincunx, five points in a cross - were named after Mount Meru, the home of the gods believed in Indian myth to lie at the center of the world."

In ancient Rome, a quincunx was a coin with a weight equal to five twelfths of a libra, a unit of weight similar to our pound. The coin's name comes from the Latin roots quinque, meaning "five," and uncia, meaning "one twelfth."  The ancients used a pattern of five dots arranged like the pips on a die as a symbol for the coin, and English speakers applied the word to arrangements similar to that distinctive five-dot mark.
