Ever wonder where we get the word 'money'? A little background on a word that’s so much a part of our daily life.
It all starts with the Roman goddess, Juno.
The Romans had many gods, their chief deity being Jupiter, a.k.a. Jove. He was the Roman equivalent of the Greek's Zeus. (If you remember from your ancient history class, the Roman deities were mainly copies of the Greek pantheon.)
Jupiter was the patron deity of ancient Rome and he ruled over their laws and social order. Jupiter was married to his sister, Juno, with whom he sired Mars, the Roman god of war, and Vulcan, the god of fire. Clearly a dysfunctional family, but on par with some of today’s reality television. I guess some things never change.
