The use of "as"
There is a sentence I cannot understand well with "as"
-What type of book became known as the Archimedes palimpsest?
Is it a short way of the sentence: What type of book does the Archimedes palimpsest become known as ? I cannot figure out the exact meaning of "as".
When I first read this sentence, I thought the "as" means "like" . So I am confused.
