From the Augusta Collection of European Gold Coins

The Psalm verse around the vine reads: You brought a vine out of Egypt and drove out the Gentiles and planted it. You made a path before it and caused it to take root so that it filled the land. Mountains are covered with its shadow and with its branches the cedars of God. You have spread its growth to the sea, and its branches to the river. Why then have you broken down its fence, that everything that passes by is torn in pieces? The wild swine have trampled it down, and the wild beasts have destroyed it. O God of hosts, turn, look from heaven and see and visit this vine and keep it in the tree which your right hand planted and which you have chosen. Behold and scold; that the burning and tearing will come to an end.
