luckily nothing suggests nothing.
in latin the (word-notion) for property derives from the idea of enclosures
for cattle, here, e.g. merriam and webster
*Pecuniary* first appeared in English in the early 16th century and comes
from the Latin word *pecunia,* which means "money." Both this root and
Latin *peculium,* which means "private property," are related to the Latin
noun for cattle, *pecus.* In early times, cattle were viewed as a trading
commodity (as they still are in some parts of the world), and property was
often valued in terms of cattle. *Pecunia* has also given us *impecunious,*
a word meaning "having little or no money," while *peculium* gave us
*peculate,* a synonym for "embezzle." In *peculium* you might also
recognize the word *peculiar,* which originally meant "exclusively one's
own" or "distinctive" before acquiring its current meaning of "strange."
as for cheese I have no idea and no interest, I ate once pecorino and it
sucks, like any and all roman gastronomy

Well how interesting. Thank you very much.
Is the suggestion that financial behavior is often herd-like, or am I
the name of the cheese is far later, from portuguese origins, I was taught
Wikipedia differs, citing “ancient Roman authors” who wrote about this
cheese. On the Pecorino Romano website these authors are identified:Varro,
Pliny the Elder, Hippocrates and Columella. No citations are given.
Perhaps the next challenge should be to find out what these folks said
about the cheese?
