Trading House of Antivar
The Trading House of Antivar was founded originally as one of many independent trade guilds in Myria. Over the years, it grew from a small-time lender and bank to a large center of trade and investment. The relatively quick growth of the Antivarian Bank attracted the interest of several wealthy patrons who wanted to make good use of their fortunes. The largest of these patrons was the Centemplum itself. Supposedly, the god of money himself, Melchior the Golden, favored the choice. Soon, Trading Houses of Antivar began operating in cities all across Myria, wherever there was money to be made.
Today, with the support of the Centemplum, the Trading House mints its own currency. The Antem is a small gold, silver or copper coin with the image of Melchior embossed on one side and the symbol of the city in which it was minted on the other.
Those with valuables or money in need of safekeeping often store them in the divinely secured vaults beneath each trading house. Only the most foolhardy of criminals would dare steal from the gods.
