I thought it was an excellent puzzle, with some very good clues. I've never come across Eliel, so wasn't tempted by that, but even if it had been familiar I think the obscure ALM would have rung alarm bells and I would have sought an alternative. Had ELIEL and ALM been the intended entries I think the final sentence of the preamble would have been different.
In the past I've occasionally thought an alternative solution has not been really justified, but in this case I cannot see any really strong objections to Eliel/Alm. Replies: There have been no replies.
