Maybe the 1713 entry came about as a result of finger trouble; First,
by getting the order of the 1 & 2 wrong, and secondly, hitting 3
instead of 2. Easy typos to make.
I know I often type 'marraige' rather than 'marriage', for example.
Thankfully, with words, the meaning isn't lost. Sadly, with numbers
the effect is disastrous.
