I missed it, but I would not have done well in that last challenge!

Sorry guys! To give fair warning, I will be going on vacation later this week, so don't wait up on me if I'm not able to tally points and declare the winner!

I was going to go with some outlandish challenge, but I think this one could be fun. Challenge coin is a recent purchase of mine


Roman Empire
Augustus & Agrippa
Brass Dupondius
Minted in Colonia Nemausus, Gaul (Nimes, France)
Obv: IMP DIVI F, Head of Agrippa left, wearing rostral crown (ship's galley), Head of Augustus right, wearing Corona Civica (oak wreath)
Rev: COL NEM, Crocodile in chains, standing on wheat, palm frond behind

Explanation - This coin commemorates the defeat of Mark Antony and Cleopatra, specifically at the Battle of Actium in 30 BC. This event was significant to the city of Nemausus in Gaul because in 27 BC Augustus rebounded the old Celtic town as a Roman style Colonia, and settled veterans of the war there - these coins were minted for decades (even after the death of Agrippa) to serve as a reminder of what happens when you cross the Emperor of Rome.

Points:
- Two or more portraits (1)
- +1 if they are facing away from each other
- +1 if both people were alive at the time of the coin's minting

- Features an animal that isn't a mammal (1)
- +1 for a reptile
- +1 for a crocodile or alligator

- Commemorates an event that took place less than 25 years before the coin's minting (1)
- Commemorates an event that happened in a different country (1)
- Commemorates an event that happened on a different continent (1)

- Chains or shackles (1)
- +1 for a chained animal
- One or more of the portraits is wearing an outlandish piece of headgear (1)
- Palm or other symbolism of victory (1)
- Wheat ears (1)

Good luck!

You just did not want to go first.

You got an alligator and I will count those as portraits.

Ah! Missed that.

Either way. Better get that next round ready for tomorrow morning when I declare you the winner.

Unless, of course, someone else steps up!

Unless I am missing something that is three points which makes Dorado the winner for posting first.
