New Euro Currency Shows Woman Riding The Beast

Via EUobserver:

In Greek mythology, the Phoenician princess Europa was abducted and raped by the king of the gods, Zeus.

But her image will from next year replace pictures of windows and doors on euro banknotes as a security and decorative feature.

Meanwhile, counterfeiting euro notes has kept international law enforcement authorities busy.

Europol, the EU’s police agency, based in The Hague, said authorities seized over €19 million in counterfeit money in Columbia alone since 2006.
