# The square of 1514

I am the square of 1514,

but actually, I'm just the square of 4.

I possess a property,

where women could be burned for in my time

What am I?

I am the square of 1514,

This is a magic square (more specifically, Dürer's magic square).

but actually, I'm just the square of 4.

Such a magic square consists of $4 \times 4$ elements.

I possess a property,

where women could be burned for in my time

Women who were accused of magic were burned during these ages.

I'm guessing 1514 refers to the year of discovery/publication? Would be nice to include this in the answer for completeness – IanF1 Feb 26 at 6:07
