We could think here of the depiction of gods on Greek and Roman coins or the portrayal of the emperor as a deity, but also of the fact that coins were often minted on or near the site of sanctuaries. For example, the mint in Rome was located near the temple of Juno Moneta, and it is believed that the two buildings were linked by a corridor (Meadows 2001, 27). But we also encounter references to the divine on medieval and modern coins, such as the motto ‘God zij met ons’ [may God be with us] on the former Dutch guilder.
