Carrera's Champion is 400 years old. With more cvs by this time 12 years later, these are maybe 1/2 or 1/3 the names for the same piece-type in ongoing use. It is shallow of Seirawan and Harper to call it Elephant I guess it is now, because Shatranj Alfil means Elephant, who strengthened becomes Bishop/Laufer/Fool/Alfil(Esp.)
