609 Virgilius

January 22, 2013

This one took more time than usual for Virgilius, with a few unfamilar names in there, but all getable, if with a little care and attention. A fairly well flagged theme. COD for me 15ac – ‘East, roughly speaking, is turned to West, as presented in articles (4)’, with 12ac, 24ac and 22d close runners up.

Here’s the old Fifteensquared blog, and the ones missed.
