I came across a curious word for which I was unable to find a proper definition for, but means something like avarice, covetousness and love of money. I know people who fit this description, but I am interested in a word that means the opposite of philargyry, in the context of an indifference or hatred of money.

    "misargyry"? "aphilargyry"? You haven't given a very complete description of what you want. Can you give an example sentence showing how you want to use this word? "Antonym" is a very vague description, and you're describing this as an antonym of an incredibly obscure word. Do you want a word that means indifference to money? Hatred of money? Generosity? – sumelic May 19 '17 at 1:25

    So you want a word that could mean either indifference to, or hatred of money? As I said earlier, you should give an example sentence to show how this word will be used. There are more guidelines on asking questions like this in the tag wiki for single word requests. – sumelic May 19 '17 at 1:54
