    • 1988, Christina Pribićević-Zorić, translating Milorad Pavić, Dictionary of the Khazars, Vintage 1989, p. 209:
      Worth the sum of two thousand two hundred akches, this is all a final gift to the said maiden if he fails to marry her within the appointed period of time.
    • 2011, Christine Woodhead (ed.), The Ottoman World:
      The corvée is an archaic feature, absent from later statutes, but the notion that 50 akçes was the rate of compensation due for loss of tithes lingered.
