Welcome to Cipher Saturday!  You've found the home of everyone's favorite weekend pastime, where a stylized photo of a somewhat famous person from history is provided here for you to identify.

Additional clues may be found in the cipher below:


So, who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.

If you'd like to make sure that your guess is correct, enter his name into Google Images and this photo will be found on the first pages of the image results.

Today, I'm again out of reach, backpacking with the Boy Scouts, so I cannot comment on your guesses, but I hope to be back tomorrow sometime.

Have a nice camping trip Nate,

To keep my streak of wild guesses alive my guess is Chief Roman Nose, Lakota

The cipher appears to be "Problemi per Il Duce", which I believe is referring to someone who was a problem for Mussolini. Therefore I'm guessing the PoM is Tafari Makonnen, who later became known as Haile Selassie I.

I'm impressed by Brian's solving of the cipher. I researched several Indian chiefs and warriors, but I agree that it must be the rastafari emperor who ended up under a toilet floor.

I'm just reading the previous post, now I notice the hint!

I apologize for my neglect of the blog. Brian, congratulations on another superb win! It was Haile Selassie.
