Saavedra: addendum
Date
Body
In my previous post I forgot to mention that Cervantes was also the author of "La gitanilla" (known to Russian readers as "Khitanochka").

Saavedra + t = Ada + sterva/versta

sterva - Russ., dead animal, carrion; vulg., shit, stinker (a term of abuse, usually of a woman)
versta - Russ., verst (3500 English feet); verst-post
