Cristoval Colon in
Lisbon, March 1493?
Colon's first letter, written from Lisbon, was quickly dispersed to
the public. Below is the last page of the printed Basel 1494 edition pointing out the bishop�s error in calling him
Bishop of Monte Peloso or the printer changed the last name Colom
(which is the same pronunciation as that of Colon and Kolon) to Columbo.
This insertion of Columbo is clearly an error, making it Latin for Pigeon/Dove
and not the Greek Kolon, meaning �member� as Don Cristoval
Colon had chosen.
Hernando Colon in the early 1500s tried to
prevent this propagation of the wrong name but it was too late, however, as
these letters had already been sent to all four corners of the globe using the name
pridie ydus Marcii.
Christoforus Colom Oceanice classis Prafectus.

Christoforus Colom, Admiral of the Ocean Fleet.
of R. L. de Corbaria, bishop of Monte Peloso ...
to Columbo, the true finder, give due thanks.
The error in changing COLOM to COLUMBO is
understandable as colom in Catalan means columbus or "pigeon" in Latin. However
the discoverer's name was Colon taken from the Greek kolon which is this case is
the same colon in Latin.
