It’s that time of year again!
I’ve got two signed hardback first edition copies of my upcoming book, The Road to Rome, on offer. The first lucky person whose name comes out of the hat will also receive a real silver denarius which dates from about 90 BC, and which therefore would have been in use at the time of my books. It’s worth a decent sum, and I thought it would add to the prize. The second person just gets the book, but as both copies will be among the 15 copies I stamp as well as sign, they’ll be getting a decent prize too.
Please answer the following question by email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org – no later than midnight (UK time) on the 22nd July. Good luck!
What was the nickname (in English or otherwise) of Caesar’s famous Fifth Legion, which fought heroically at Thapsus?
