This weeks First and Second place winners will be picked at random…The question must be answered by Saturday at midnight EST.
Using the four cardinal points, what were the northernmost, southernmost, westernmost, and easternmost mints that are reliably recognized as having issued Roman Imperial coins during the period 27 B.C. – A.D. 476? (Note: unofficial mints, mints of separatist empires, or mints that exclusively issued provincial coinage are not eligible.)
Our first place winner will receive a copy of The Expert’s Guide to Collecting & Investing in Rare Coins by Q.David Bowers
There will also be a runner up prize given to a selected player with the correct answer.
REMINDER: The Numisma-Quest ends on Saturday at midnight EST. Entries after that time will not be valid. See the Trivia info post for more details
Loc: Port Orchard, WA
This is a guess because the question spans from the entire existence of the empire but I think using the cardinal directions the answer is as follows;
The Easternmost mint was Antioch in present day Syria. The Northernmost mint was Lugdunum located in present day France. The Southernmost mint was Alexandria located in present day Egypt. The Westernmost mint was Rome located in of course present day Italy.
Knowledge, attitude, and reason breed results.
