Shells (see sequin), and coins of bronze (see obol), silver (see drakhma) and gold (see /mina) are used as money in Gehennum.

To summarise the relationship between the currency items:

10 sequins = 1 obol 1 svu
6 obols = 1 drakhma 6 svu
20 drakhmas = 1 mina 120svu

An obol will buy a cooked meal, neither of the best quality nor the worst, at a tavern with pretensions to fashion, or will buy enough raw food to feed a man for a day.
