580 Virgilius

December 18, 2012

Not only did I miss the theme today, but also struggled badly after a fast start in the NW corner. Need a rest obviously, roll on the holidays! COD 18d – ‘In river, drag as far down as possible (7)’.

Here’s the Fifteensquared blog, plus the ones missed.

Across

18 NO BALL – NOB ALL
25 NAIROBI – (an oribi)*
26 SITE – Sounds like CITE

Down

1 BILL – Double Def. It’s also a ‘polearm weapon used by infantry in medieval Europe.’
5 ENCIRCLE – (R + licence)*
18 DEE PEST

    I thought this was really difficult. I still don’t understand 24A.
