QuotationsEdit

  • early 3rd-century, Sextus Julius Africanus, Kestoi, chapter on weights and measures:
    … τὴν δὲ μνᾶν τῷ μ ἐπικείμενον ἔχοντι τὸ ν (μν) (τὸ ν μν πεντήκοντα μνᾶς, ἐνίοτε δὲ ρ διὰ μέσου γραμμὴν ἔχον τὸ αὐτὸ σημαίνει ϼ) …
    … tḕn dè mnân tôi m epikeímenon ékhonti tò n (mn) (tò n mn pentḗkonta mnâs, eníote dè r dià mésou grammḕn ékhon tò autò sēmaínei ϼ) …
    and the mina by the μ having the ν on top of it (μν) (50 μν = fifty mina, and sometimes ρ having a line through the middle means the same ϼ) …
