Yes, it was Crowley's way of reworking IAO to total to 93. (And, in pronouncing it, remember that the first and last letters aren't the English F but the Greek diagamma, which is pronounced essentially as a consonantal U. To over-simplify, the pronunciation is roughly Wee-Ah-Ou.)

Do you have any specific questions about it? The treatment in Magick in Theory & Practice is quite excellent.

thank you for your reply jim, basically of course i see it equals 93 an i have read in MTP how it goes with the story of parzival. but other than these 2 things is there anything else i should look at or know about this word? or is that it?

There's a whole universe to look at - and that's just the part you already have in front of you.

BTW, notice that it's not just Parsifal - that's just one variation of the myth. Crowley also developed it in terms of the Horus story for example. It's a formula, not the analysis of a specific myth.
