Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Study of limestone weights, Roman period, from Jerusalem; suggesting that they belong not to several consequential systems, but to one weight system based on a mina of 100 Roman denarii = 375g. These weights have no relation to purity and temple tithes/taxes.
