This Month's Picture Quiz
Can you name the character depicted below and where this design appears? (Hint: a certain Imperator bore this design - a historical emperor, of course)

From the Editors:

Thank you for reading the June edition of the Magazine. As you may have noticed, we did not issue an edition for May. Quite simply, we felt that it wasn't the best thing to have the magazine become outdated after half a month, since traditionally, we released the issues around the middle of each month. So, we decided to release this edition a little later and call it the "June Edition." That way, the issue can now enjoy a full month's time in its correct month!

As with all editions of the magazine, this edition could not have been possible without the support of our contributors. If you have an article that you would like contribute to the magazine, or if you just want to ask a question or have a chat about contributing, please don't hesitate to drop us a line.

To contact us there are several options,
1. By email or PM to: Paul, Imperator Invictus, Emperor Barbarossa or hugoestr
2. Through the forum at this post:
3. Submit via the form on this page (be sure to mention AE Magazine in the title.

Answer to Last month's Picture Quiz:

The "island of California" - one of the most famous cartographic errors in history.

The map is French and dates from 1656. In 1510 Garcia Ordonez de Montalvo wrote a novel: ..on the right hand of the Indies there is an ...and it is peopled by black women, without any man among them, for they live in the manner of Amazons. Hernan Cortez first heard of this reference in 1539 and sent two expeditions in search of the island, discovering the Californian Peninsular. However in 1592 Juan de la Fuca reported a passage at the north of the peninsular that connected to the Atlantic Ocean. Later a Father, Antonio de la Ascension, sailed the Californian coast and wrote that it was an island. In 1622 California made its first appearance on maps as an island and this continued throughout he whole of the seventeenth century. In 1705 Jesuit missionary Father Eusebio proved for once and for all that California was a peninsular by walking from New Mexico to California and gradually maps began to portray is as a peninsular. However, its appearance as an island continued to persisted until 1747, when Ferdinand VII issued a formal decree declaring that California was a peninsular.

Since I don't know any brands of bags and barely own any leather Items, I can't really answer that question. (btw, thanks for the notice about the link)

The style is obviously greek classical (not roman). And the only emperor during that period has been Alexander the Great. The sculpture (or basorelief) should be at one of the monuments he built in the several towns that he named Alexandria.

Yeah, I guess the picture quiz question is a bit hard. Of course, it's just a little gimmick to make you read next month's issue. Wink
