Design of Sumerian Euro (€)

 

Sumer is one of the first civilizations, originated around 5000 years ago.

Imagine that the Sumerians had adopted euro. How it may look like?

I imagine a bilingual design of Sumerian euro. Example of clay jetton for 25 euro

There exist exact glosses E-uru-ga, E-iri-kug where syllables ‘e2’ (‘house, temple’) and ‘uru2’ or 'iri' (‘city’) are used.

Therefore, the word ‘euro' (e2-uru2) means ‘city house’ in Sumerian, and it is in good agreement with the idea of united Europe.
