We show how for every integer n one can explicitly construct n distinct
plane quartics and one hyperelliptic curve over **C** all of whose Jacobians
are isomorphic to one another as abelian varieties without polarization.
When we say that the curves can be constructed “explicitly”,
we mean that the coefficients of the defining equations of the curves
are simple rational expressions in algebraic numbers in **R**
whose minimal polynomials over **Q** can be given exactly
and whose decimal approximations can be given to as many places
as is necessary to distinguish them from their conjugates.
We also prove a simply-stated theorem that allows one to decide whether or not
two plane quartics over **C**, each with a pair of commuting involutions,
are isomorphic to one another.
