Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #402.
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.
Answer to Question #402 is "b"; Third.
Summary of Quiz Game Question #401: 12 players.
