“Mammon” is an Aramaic word for money (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics 1951, sv, “Mammon.”).

The classical Greek word philarguron, mistranslated as “covetousness” in some New Testament bibles, at Luke 16:14 and as “money” In 1 Timothy 6:10, means fond of silver.

Silver was the money of Christ’s day hence, Luke 16, in context reads, “You cannot serve God and money (mammon): you’ll either love the one and hate the other ... the Pharisees (Jews) who loved money (philarguron), heard all this and scoffed.”
“You cannot serve God and money (mammon): you’ll either love the one and hate the other ... the Pharisees (Jews) who loved money (philarguron), heard all this and scoffed.” -- Luke 16
