Afana can mean “chaste,” “modest,” “not greedy,” or “the forgiver.”

Alfalfa literally means “horse food.”

Alfalfa was also the name of one of the "Our Gang" kids (aka Little Rascals). Apparently the actor who played Alfalfa "was known for being abrasive and difficult on the set. He would often play cruel jokes on the other actors and hold up filming with his antics".

Alfalfa also apparently originated in Iran, contributing to the advancement of civilization. It's a small world ....

I wonder what that message is all about?
Shouldn’t be to hard to figure out who he is talking about here.

Afana, in Spanish, could also mean:

to swipe (to take);
to rush;
to do everything one can, to toil;
or
to make an effort.

In Spanish, perhaps, because of its location, or perhaps because of the name of the person who sent Mr. Fenn the solution to the poem.

Timing of this last post would be important. Did Jennie receive this last question from Afana within the past 10 days or is it one that had been sent some time ago?

Timing will eliminate a lot with a propensity toward confirmation bias.

My guess is that Jenny never saw it.

"Forrest, when the Treasure Chest is found, would you prefer the finder not disclose the exact resting spot? Curious. ~ Afana..."

>>>>
My own curiosity: Afana refers to the location of the Treasure Chest as "the exact resting spot"...that is, "resting spot" and not location or, simply, spot.

Another curiosity: Who is Afana? Could it be someone who is "a fan a" (a fan of) the person who solved the poem?

So, it's unlikely that f made up the name for it's meaning. I do think it's more likely that f loved the wordplay using the name to be "a fan a", meaning "a fan of". Perhaps he chose when to release this question and answer at this time for a reason. If he's using it this way, what is he implying he is "a fan a" of? alfalfa, Alfalfa (and his club), a field? Possibly something else?

Like almost everything in this hunt, we really can't be sure of much, and can only go with our best guesses. This results in lots of "possibles", "perhaps's" and "maybe's". Be wary of definitive statements until that darned chest is found.

Oh, yes I forgot....add "imo" to that list of qualifiers. imo.


So, the question becomes, "Did Afana ask the question?"
