What were you thinking of?

Lots o’ luck trying to figure out what the writer for Yahoo! Style thinks an apostrophe means here:

pot of gold sty

An apostrophe can indicate the omission of a letter. What letter could be missing in pot ‘o gold? Did the writer mean pot so gold? Pot to gold? Or maybe pot no gold?
