6. The WBCC Bi-metallic Quiz Game Jack Hepler, USA
Gibraltar used the trials or labors of Hercules on a series of Bi-metallic Two Pound coins. On an issue of 1998, Hercules is shown trying to get the Hind of Ceryneia. To clarify some things; what is a hind? and, where is Ceryneia? But these are not the questions for this quiz. Ceryneia is a town in Greece, about fifty miles from Eurystheus' palace in Mycenae. And a Hind is simply a female Red Deer. Now for the quiz question. Which of the trials of Hercules was this task?
a. First.
b. Third.
c. Fifth.
d. Ninth.
Please send your answer to me:
