French Francs
The FRANC (/fræŋk/ ; French: ; sign : F or FR), also commonly distinguished as the FRENCH FRANC (FF), was a currency of France . Between 1450 and 1999, it was the name of coins worth 1 livre tournois and it remained in common parlance as a term for this amount of money. It was reintroduced (in decimal form ) in 1795. It was revalued in 1960, with each NEW FRANC (NF) being worth 100 old francs. The NF designation was continued for a few years before the currency returned to being simply the franc; the French continued to reference and value items in terms of the old franc (equivalent to the new centime ) until the introduction of the euro in 1999 (for accounting purposes) and 2002 (for coins and banknotes). The French franc was a commonly held international reserve currency of reference in the 19th and 20th centuries

Eurydice (Anouilh Play)
EURYDICE is a play by French writer Jean Anouilh , written in 1941. The story is set in the 1930s, among a troupe of travelling performers.

The result is a heavily ironic modern retelling of the classical Orpheus myth. The play has also been performed under the title POINT OF DEPARTURE, a translation by Kitty Black, and on Broadway as LEGEND OF LOVERS, in a 1951 production by the Theatre Guild .
