unknown 6-22-19

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. All my ID tests put the correct type on top. PH hill-climbing solved it without a crib. Key search solved it also. I’ll include a caesar-shifted crib.

  1. A synonym for the word immediately preceding the quote, Caesar enciphered, is AIEXLIV. My hill-climber solved it without the crib, but my Analyzer placed the correct type in 6th place, so it took a while trying other types first. A few of the letters in the solution are wrong, so I haven’t derived the key from the hillclimber’s solution. I tried using two word lists for key searches, but they failed, possibly due to formatting issues.
