comment What is the earliest source that mentions Gematria?
Are you asking for the earliest source to use the word גימטריא to refer to literal-numerical calculations based on the spellings of words or the earliest source to refer to גימטריא, which is almost certainly a transliteration of the Greek word for geometry? (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geometry)

comment Origins of איל משולש and Vilna Ga'on's bathroom math
@Gershon Gold - What does "האיל" in that line mean? Was he a ram? I was assuming it was also a play on the Vilna Ga'on's first name, אליהו.
