Romans used praescriptiones, a form of cheque, round about the first century. So, yeah. Good cartoon.

They had checks way back then? Who knew?


The Romans had a fairly organised system of financial transactions, so they probably had cheques of a sort. A signed (or more accurately, sealed) letter from person A to their banker instructing them to pay x amount of money to person B is essentially a cheque. Romans needed stuff like that - it's not practical to be carting large sums of coinage or valuables around whenever you want to do business across hundreds or thousands of miles.

By the way - hilarious post.
