The official entity name is &euro; - its definition will have the form:

<!ENTITY euro "&#128;">

if running on a Microsoft system as Microsoft have assigned Hex 80 as the
codepoint.
TC304 have assigned it to Hexadecimal B1 in ISO 8859, and its ISO 10646 code
point is 20AC, so the following should be the formal XML reference to it:

<!ENTITY euro &#X20ac; >
