Римский подход к проблеме мульти-культурности - spintria :)


This is a spintria. They were used in ancient Rome to request and pay for different “services” in brothels and from prostitutes on the street.
Since there were:
- a lot of foreigners coming to the city that did not speak the language and
- most of the prostitutes were slaves captured from other places
the coins made the transactions easy and efficient.
