I was reading Bayes' essay "An Essay towards Solving a Problem in the Doctrine of Chances" and noticed the following bit of notation
The meaning of the n+1 term is clear from the rest of the essay (in modern terms it would be surrounded by parentheses rather than have the bar), but the ×d part confused me. Initially I thought it meant "multiply d times", but there is no numeric variable d elsewhere, leading me to think that ×d is meant to be an abbreviation for "multiplied".
Has ×d been used in other works to mean multiplied? Here, it seems to mean that in context (it fits the sentence, at least), but other historical examples would increase my confidence.
A copy of the paper is here. The image is from the bottom of page 29 of the PDF.
