the 'code' is known as Caesar's Square - hence the reference to "he whom Brutus slew'.

Go to

and click "Play the original..." at the bottom. A lot of fun. I completed this, it wasn't too hard, but it was interesting.

Hello wertyk,

The da Vinci Code URL you gave.  I'm stuck on the fifth question re the famous phrase around the seal.  I've deduced that the answer is three words with 1, 8 and 4 letters and one of the hints says it is not in English.  Can you help?

What "Nation shall speak peace unto nation" ?

Thanks for your earlier clue, I did a Google on "Dollar Bill" and found the answer.

I came across an interesting site http://www.matt-thornton.net/index.php
Matt is a 24 year studying for a Ph. D.  He is a drummer and likes to surf.  Among other things he has solved both the Da Vinci quests and published the solutions on his site.  He is somewhat scathing of the quests.

Anyway the answer to my original question is a phrase printed on the US one dollar bill "E pluribus unum".  A tricky question for a Brit.
