    My question was why panzerman posted his coin to his own 'Next' only two hours after posting the request. We need the 12 hour rule to keep it moving especially when there are uncommon requests. Cyrene and silphium are common enough that people could post them but not everyone on this lists lives here 24/7 and some sleep for over two hours at a time.

    I only have two silphium coins and have posted both here several times. I do not see benefit in posting the same coins over and over again. It is time for someone else to play theirs or declare a restart perhaps using something that will allow other people to participate. Maybe 195 pages has worn out the supply of postable subjects?
