Subject: (urth) recognition of Typhon

Of course Typhon recognizes Severian.  He says, "If you kneel before me, the 
New Sun will kneel before me when he comes."  Right after they talk about the 
New Sun and the Conciliator being the SAME PERSON.  Not only does Typhon know 
Severian, he knows about the sea powers and already seeks an alliance with 
them, and he knows about Severian's relic (ostensibly claiming that he knows 
about it from watching him try to use it on Little Severian - but it doesn't 
do crap there, does it?  He must know about it from somewhere/when else.)  
It's very, very hard to read that scene without believing that Typhon knows 
precisely who Typhon is, especially with the Concialiator/New Sun/Severian 
connection made by Typhon himself.
