# Another Easy Riley

I have another easy Riley riddle for the community.

Let us seek the prefix, remove the k from latch.

Observe the infix in it's prime, located on the map.

Seek the suffix in the past, eaten by those who dwell.

Together not the word you seek; the synonyms will surely tell.

Partial answer:

Let us seek the prefix, remove the k from latch.

lock -> loc

Observe the infix in it's prime, located on the map.

peak(?) height? - mountain peaks are located on the map, and the meaning is similar to prime

Seek the suffix in the past, eaten by those who dwell.

eon is a geologic time unit

Together not the word you seek; the synonyms will surely tell.

loc...eon?

My wildest guess:

loc height eon -> location?

Last guess for today:

If US is in its prime, then it might be locust.

• So close, yet so far away! :D Haha, see my pun there? LOL Still a good answer and you seriously are close; the prefix is correct but the infix and suffix are wrong. Commented Sep 18, 2018 at 20:53
• Was pretty sure that it would be the case. XD Someday I'll solve 'em. Someday...
