the three golden balls

the three golden balls
вывеска или лавка ростовщика [три шара были изображены на гербе семьи Медичи. Банкиры Ломбардии были первыми крупными ростовщиками в Европе]

Only I just wish people wouldn't quote Lincoln or the Bible, or hang out the flag or cross, to cover up something that belongs more to the bank-book and the three golden balls. (S. Lewis, ‘Gideon Planish’, ch. 1) — Я только не люблю, когда люди цитируют Линкольна или Библию и вывешивают государственный флаг или крест там, где больше подошла бы чековая книжка или вывеска ростовщика.
