Oh, I see what you mean.  I'd thought he referred to his much shorter
capture by the Ascians in Citadel, which admittedly seemed much shorter than
a year, since he says the Autarch (as Severian and the old autarch) was
absent for a month only in XXIV of Citadel.  However, I dismissed that as
another self-contradiction by Severian.
But, if it's true, then that means he must have been captured twice - one
would think that would somehow have been more important than it's been, but
I suppose that's solidly in the realm of speculation.
