Latin. Money bag. n. Money-bag, purse, imperial exchequer. The fisk. Among the Romans this was the name given to the private treasury of the Emperor, and was distinct from œrarium, the public one. By the writers on Scotch law, this word is used to denote the revenue of the crown; and also (as in the Act 1661, cap. 32) the crown's right to the moveable estate of persons denounced rebels.
