Asker: I think it is the phrase "by the order of" that means what you suggested

Asker: A Google search tells us that "on the order of sth" means approximately. I am mixed up.

  -> Ok, thanks. The definitions are from the above dictionaries. I believe it's better for the Asker to have more options to choose from.

neutral  AllegroTrans: Agree with BD, the asker is likely to be confused by your other options (I would be if I were a non-EN native speaker)

  -> Thanks for that. I see your point. I don’t see it that way. I think non-native English speakers, translators in particular, might appreciate it if more synonyms are given.
