ORIGINAL POST, SEE UPDATES BELOW: We’re looking into this, but we can confirm: There’s something called the ‘Greek Drachma (post Euro)’ that’s shown up on Bloomberg.

We’ve seen tons of tweets and screengrabs of the page. Here’s a picture of a terminal sent in by a trader. Note the fourth line.

There’s nothing really behind the ticker. No quotes or anything. It’s just there.

We’re also not sure if it’s actually new, or if it’s just something that’s shown up.

We’ll let you know what we figure out.

UPDATE: According to the Bloomberg help desk, this is currently “an internal function which is set up to test.”

The representative could not tell us when any data would go live or what it whether it was set to follow data ahead of a Greek exit from the euro.

UPDATE II: Thanks to @world_first for spotting that the Drachma has now been taken of Bloomberg.
