E665 -- Evolutio problematis cuius solutio analytica est difficillima dum synthetica per se est obvia
(The evolution of a problem whose analytic solution is most difficult, while the synthetic solution for it is obvious)
According to Eneström, the goal is "to define a curve so that for every point, the distance from center point of the curvature to a given point is constant."
