FRANKFURT (AFP) - The European Central Bank revealed on Monday the new 10-euro banknotes including a portrait of the Greek mythological figure of Europa that will come into circulation from late September.

"The new 10-euro banknote of the Europa series will start circulating on September 23," the ECB said in a statement.

Like the new five-euro notes already launched in May, the new 10-euro notes have benefited from advances in banknote technology since the first series was introduced more than ten years ago.

Its security features have been enhanced, making them "even more resistant to counterfeiting," the ECB said.
