      "Så gullbarren vår er også smeltet om mynter?"
      "Nei," sa Rublov, "Det er det som er litt spesielt. Myntmakeren sa det var for mye kolsidiumnitratsulfat* i det norske gullet."
      "So our gold ingot is also melted down for coins?"
      "No," Rublov said, "It's a little special. The coinmaker said there was too much colsidium nitrate phosphate* in the Norwegian gold." [*kolsidiumnitratfosfat appears to be a fictitious word]
