quaestuary or questuary
1. Relating to financial matters.
2. Done only for monetary gain.
From Latin quaestus (gain), from quaerere (to seek, gain, or inquire). Earliest documented use: 1581.
In Ancient Rome, a quaestor was an official dealing with financial matters. Later it was the term for a prosecutor. In the Roman Catholic Church, a quaestor was the official removing sins in exchange for money (aka granting indulgences). In modern times, in the European Parliament, quaestors are officials elected to oversee financial matters.
“The quaestuary 12 football clubs creating the European Super League have forgotten in their avariciousness the vital element of successful sporting competition: tradition.”
Mark Boyle; The European Super League Clubs Cannot Buy Tradition, Their Lifeblood; The Daily Telegraph (London, UK); Apr 20, 2021.
