Magnification show numbers and letters in Mona Lisa painting

A book in an antique shop ­referring to symbols in the Mona Lisa’s eyes led experts to take another look at the almost 500 year old painting. In the dark paint of her pupils they found the letters LV (maybe referring to Leonardo da Vinci’s initials), and the letters CE, or possibly a B. In the arch of the bridge in the background the number 72, or an L and a 2 can be seen under high magnification. What the symbols represent is anyone’s guess in this real-life Da Vinci Code mystery.
