    (slightly changed :D)


    Post coins of rulers whose names start with the day's letter.

    Ex.


    We start with 'A', from what little remains of the first till the end of the 3rd, then we go to 'B', for the next two days, etc.

    ie.
    A: September 1st to the 3rd
    B: September 4th and 5th
    C: September 6th and 7th

    Only rulers or can the coin be a city coin, i.e., Attica for A?

    We will do Rulers first, and maybe Cities after that.
