<Do you really believe that the tomb of the Conciliator would remain
unguarded, open and accessable.>

I guess not...

<Maybe the tomb is really Sev1 who returns to Urth from Yesod (in the past of
course), marries, has children, and lives out his days in defeat.  (or do you
die when you fail the trial?)>

For those who have failed the trial (Ymar and the Old Autarch), the punishment
was castration. I suppose it would be the same for Sev1.
He wouldn't have had children.

Hypothesizing on which Severian is in that tomb is easy; what is hard is
trying to explain why that Severian would pick those three symbols to put on
the tomb (a fountain, a rose, and a ship volant).
