There is a correspondence between G-Fano threefolds and conjugacy classes in Mathieu group M24. Construction of cusp-forms from conjugacy classes in Mathieu group is well-known. It is less known that A-model on G-Fano threefolds also naturally produce modular forms. Why these two lists of modular forms are so similar is yet another moonshine.
