A CONTEST TO INTRODUCE ANCIENT MOOLA. Pictured above are the faces of 16 coins that were issued before the birth of Christ. Some were issued centuries before.
How many can you identify? We will accept the name of the figure shown on the coin or the name of the coin's issuer as correct answers. The person with the most correct identifications will win a pre-publication proof copy of my upcoming book Ancient Selfies signed by the author.
You can send your entries directly to the author at firstname.lastname@example.org. (You could also post your entry as a comment but that would give your answer to other entrants.) Entries are due by five p.m. Eastern time on Friday, September 23. In case of a tie, the earlier entry will be be the winner.
Ancient Selfies celebrates a resource few people know much about - ancient coins. It uses these coins to illustrate the personal lives and accomplishments of the leaders who, thousands of years ago, built the foundations of our civilization. As the world's first social media (see my earlier post), these coins provide a unique, first person glimpse into their ancient world.
Good luck with your entry! Need a hint? Most of these people spoke Latin or Greek.
