Trigon Lords:

The trigon lords were the main "baseline" indicator of eminence in hellenistic astrology.  By eminence, we mean how influential or important an individual will be in this world (not necessarily how famous).

Vettius Valens gave the trigon lords as being the primary consideration and the 4 lots (Fortune, Spirit, Exaltation and Basis) a secondary consideration, saying that "they appended these as confirming the testimony of the trigon lords, but not refuting them".  I am guessing that it is similar to the way transits in hellenistic astrology do not change the meaning of an event, but merely intensify what is already evident.
