There has long been a connection of Juno to money. In 390 BC, a flock of geese kept in Juno’s sanctuary on Capitoline Hill saved Rome by warning of an impending invasion by the Gauls. The Roman General, Marcus Furius Camillus, built a temple on the hill in gratitude for the Goddess’ warning. Approximately one hundred years later, the first Roman mint was built adjacent to the temple and the coins, struck with the head of Juno Moneta on the face, were called moneta. She has since been considered the protector of money and guardian of finances. For this reason, the epithet Moneta given to Juno has long been considered to be derived from Latin monēre, meaning to remind, warn, or instruct, but many scholars believe it derives from the Greek word μονήρης , meaning alone, unique.
