Cattle (which include sheep, camels, and other livestock) are the first and
oldest form of money. Each head of cattle was called a caput, which is Latin
for "head." So, a person with a lot of cattle had lots of caput or
"capital," a word still used today to describe money.
Throughout history, people have used many forms of money, such as soap,
cocoa beans, elephant tail hairs, entire elephants, grain, animal skins,
fishhooks, feathers, tea tobacco, bird claws, and bear teeth.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
