Borrowed from Latin mina, from Ancient Greek μνᾶ (mnâ, mna). Compare maneh, from Biblical Hebrew מָנֶה(māne), as well as maund.

NounEdit

mina (plural minas or minae)

  1. (historical) A monetary unit of ancient Greece and the Middle East, originally equivalent to the weight of a mina of silver. [From 15th C.]
    • 1989, C. D. C Reeve, Socrates in the Apology: An Essay on Plato′s Apology of Socrates, page 174,
      What then of the actual fine of thirty minae Socrates proposes? Thirty minae was a large sum, “the equivalent of approximately eight-and-one-half years′ wages," according to one recent estimate (Brickhouse and Smith 1988, 227); enough to buy a library of three thousand philosophy books, if the price of Anaxogoras′ book is any guide (26d6-e2).
  2. (historical) A unit of weight of varying value used in the ancient Middle East, especially Babylonia, Mesopotamia and Egypt; also an ancient Greek measure of weight equivalent to 1/60th of a talent. [From 16th C.]

      Thirty minas of lapis lazuli in a solid block, two minas each their rims, six kor of oil, the capacity of both.
