Alias

The Nag Hammadi Library - One of the Gnostic codices discovered in the Nag Hammadi library in 1945 bears the name Philip in its title, on the bottom line.
Use one as in one after one of the twelve – Philip was the name of one of the twelve Apostles

After is where you use the one – Philip1
Look on the bottom line of one of the thirteen in the Library – See clue 1
Kings and Royalty – Phil(l)ip is the name of some Kings and Royalty past and present
The true love of someone from 1959 whose name has been changed to Briar Rose - Prince Phillip is a fictional character of the 1959 Disney film Sleeping Beauty

Alias

Could be mudstone
Or a town in Hungary
Even Ernest Hemingway will get you guessing the alias correctly if you go to Havana
Or eat potato dishes in Barcelona
Or live in a domed cap on a stalk shaped house in the forest
Or go to Belgium
To get you back to 1958 when they travelled through dense forests, deep marshes, a scorching desert and a high mountain range to reach their part of the world
Have you perhaps seen me in nearby Velskoendorp?
Could be family

:clap: :clap: :clap: very well done LQ :gflower: You are correct :D

Could be mudstone - Papa rock, a Māori-derived term for a blue-grey mudstone, is common in New Zealand

Or a town in Hungary – Pápa is a town in Hungary

Even Ernest Hemingway will get you guessing the alias correctly if you go to Havana - Papa: Hemingway in Cuba, a 2015 film about Ernest Hemingway

Or eat potato dishes in Barcelona – Papa is the Spanish word for potato

Or live in a domed cap on a stalk shaped house in the forest- The Smurfs, a fictional colony of small blue humanoids live in mushroom-shaped houses in the forest

Or go to Belgium - The Smurfs is a Belgian comic

To get you back to 1958 when they travelled through dense forests, deep marshes, a scorching desert and a high mountain range to reach their part of the world - When the Smurfs first appeared in 1958 they lived in a part of the world called "Le Pays Maudit"


Have you perhaps seen me in nearby Velskoendorp? - In the 1800’s the residents of George mockingly called Oudtshoorn Velskoendorp. The forum member Papa Smurf is from Calitzdorp.


Could be family - Papa could be father or grandfather.


= PAPA SMURF which is the name of the forum member.

Just something interesting when I searched for the Hemmingway clue:

And then try ordering a Papa Doble, Hemingway’s drink: shaken and not blended


That was how I got to Papa!
