I called it "guess the portrait", and as you could have guessed, someone will post just the portrait side of the coin and everyone has to guess who it is. I will explain more to that in a bit! I decided to do this is for all ancient coins, I first wanted to exclude Roman imperials (and provincial) as it is just a totally other piece of cake compared to Greek and Roman Republican, but to enjoy some variety in the game, all ancient coins can be posted (but let's do keep it varied ). Now to how this game works: Someone posts only the side of the coin that has the portrait without any description or whatsoever (Post only the side of the portrait, since if both sides of the coins are posted it is a lot easier to guess). Someone posts in respond to this coin and guesses who is portrayed on the coin. If the person who posted the coin portrait sees the right answer, he/she will quote him/her and says that person got it and will post the full coin with description. The person who got it right posts the next portrait coin. NOTE: If you are guessing who is portrayed on the coin, and you know 100% sure that your answer is correct. You post the full coin with description yourself (either from your own collection if you have it or from the internet) and then continue to post the next portrait coin, without having to wait for confirmation that it is correct. The other person can always post his full coin with description later on. Some other notes: If after 12h the portrait is still not guessed, the person needs to start giving hints/tips, or perhaps show the whole coin to make it easier. Also, if people are guessing and after 24h the person still does not respond if any answer is correct or wrong, someone random can place a new portrait coin. This to prevent the game from stopping when someone is inactive for a longer time. Let's make an example Person 1: Guess who this is! Person 2: That is Herakles! Person 3: No that is Apollo! Person 4: This must be Perseus! Person 1: [Quotes Person 4] That is correct! Mithridates VI Amisos, Pontos Bronze Coin (80 - 70 B.C) Obverse: Head of Perseus right, wearing Phrygian helmet. Reverse: AMIΣOY, Pegasus grazing or drinking left, monograms below and left. Reference: SNG BM Black Sea 1213-7; 11.01g; 23mm Person 4: [Posts next portrait coin]. OR Person 1: Guess who this is! Person 2: That is Herakles! Person 3: No that is Apollo! Person 4: This 100% must be Perseus! I recognize it since I got the same type in my collection! (Just a random coin from the internet to show as example) PONTOS. Amisos. Time of Mithradates VI Eupator, circa 85-65 BC. AE (Bronze, 23 mm, 12.83 g, 1 h). Head of Perseus to right, wearing Phrygian helmet. Rev. AMIΣOY Pegasos grazing left; to left and below, two monograms. HGC 7, 239. SNG BM Black Sea 1213-14. A very well centered and sharply struck example. Nearly extremely fine. and then: [Posts next portrait coin]. ----------------------------- I hope you all like this idea, if you have any suggestions please let me know! I will start with the first coin, who is this?
