The etymology of Anthologica is a matter of occasional family discussion and barfights in the country which arises little to much controversy depending on the mob's mood.

Some scholars have suggested that it comes from ant (eusocial insects of the family Formicidae) + hology "science of holes" + –ica "collection of things (related to the combining root)", so the name would mean "collective scientific study of ant holes". Others suggest that ant– is in fact a short version of anti– "against" used before vowel or h, the toponym thus meaning "collection of (people) against the scientific study of holes".

However other scholars disagree with the aforementioned etymologies and suggest different origins and meanings.
    Professor Twabs suggests that it comes from an– (not) + tho (though) + logic "of logs" + –a (femenine), thus "not female-log-related, though".

quoting Hālian, Atetía @ Central Florida:
Your money is too beautiful for this world, how do you not have a job designing money irl

(Also I've been trying to design Hoennese coinage but drawing a blank as to obverse designs… doesn't help that I can't draw anything more complicated than simple geometric shapes myself, either vector or raster.)

Drawing fantasy money (coins and banknotes) is quite easy once you now where to fish textures and images and how to work with them. In the first case Rhetorica and bloodbath have already pointed out the basic places: Wikimedia Commons, OpenClipart... Doing extensive searchs through Google Images also helps a lot, especially for gradations, uncommon geometric shapes and other textures.

Then working them shouldn't be a big problem: I use Paint.NET, a free software, but more complex things like Gimp or Photoshop are also a possibility. To be honest, you really don't need something very professional, since playing with basic tools like gradient, magic wands and layers is practically all you need. The most important thing of all, in my opinion, is to have a clear idea of what you want to do, no matter if it's too close to real coins and banknotes or a more deviant design.

Take as an example the first banknote I ever designed, a 5 aras note:

Not very sophisticated. The use of textures is practically non-existent, since I only used some superimposed geometric patterns (and very simple: distorted lines), but it was a first step. The image is treated as a separate layer with some diminished opacity, to melt it with the background, and the rest is just opaque images (the central vertical strip and the numbers and letters). What took more time and patience was the right strip, which has a pattern of iridescent shapes and numbers, but even that wasn't a pain.
    The next series of banknotes (which I'll do some day...) will be more refined. And so on. It's all about trying to do it, failing at it, and repeating.

What does the accent on that <ú> stand for? Tonic vowel?
