Caesar Cypher & The Substitutions have been on tour, and as tradition dictates, the souvenir tour T-shirt bears a list of the cities visited on the back. But of course, since we're talking about one of Europe's leading cryptographic jazz combos, the list is in code:
The list contains no information apart from the city names. Can you work out their itinerary?
There are nine numbers on the telephone with asociated letters (newer phones put Q and Z on the 0).
Perhaps the digits represent one of the three letters on the numbers. Obviously, we can't use the straight phone code since the number 9 has letters and 9 never shows up, and 1 has no letters, but the number 1 appears in the puzzle.
If we rearrange the letters like this:
0 - ABC
1 - DEF
2 - GHI
8 - QZ
I can't see any city names in either of those two.
Maybe a different association of letters with numbers?
