NUMISMATIC ANGUISH 

   We did have one reader who correctly answered Mommsen. 
   Henk Groenendijk wrote: "The Nobel Laureate is: Christian 
   Matthias Theodor Mommsen.   I found it by using the search 
   button and the word numismatic. This also turned up a second 
   quotation:   Miguel Angel Asturio used the term "numismatic 
   anguish" in his acceptance speech.  I do not know the meaning 
   of numismatic in this context." 

   [Neither do I.  Any ideas, readers? 
     The paragraph follows  -Editor] 

        This novel shares - consciously or unconsciously - the 
        characteristics of the indigenous texts; their freshness 
        and power, the numismatic anguish in the eyes of the 
        Creoles who awaited the dawn in the colonial night, 
        more luminous however than this night that threatens 
        us now. Above all, it is the affirmation of the optimism of 
        those writers that defied the Inquisition, opening a 
        breach in the conscience of the people for the march of 
        the Liberators.
