CoinsWeekly’s February quiz – this time it’s all about ancient Greece

[bsa_pro_ad_space id=4]

Every month now, a historically interesting coin can be won. The new Munich coin shop Gitbud & Naumann, Münzhandlung München GmbH, Ottostr. 5, 80333 München has sponsered them.
To become the proud winner you have to correctly answer our quiz’ five questions first. This time reading the main article will not be enough. A bit of digging in the archive is necessary, too – unless you have a profound knowledge of ancient history.

There you go:

1.) Which ancient philosopher and writer thought that coins were invented to make trade easier?

2.) How does current research call the coalition built under the guidance of Athens as a defense alliance against the Persians?

3.) Where was the war chest of this coalition stored at the beginning?

4.) Which Greek hero tamed Pegasus?

5.) What tool did he receive from the goddess Athena to do so?
