Letter: Europa's bull, to coin a symbol

Sir: "Euro" is not uninspired, but could happily be personified to "Europa". This sounds more melodious (on analogy with lira, drachma, peseta - "One Europa, two Europas, ... ". "Europae" could be demanded by purists.). The eponymous Europa could also give Europe back its cultural identity. The symbol would, of course, be Europa's bull. Symbolism could then be injected by the propagandists.
