A provincial weight from after the monetary reform of 538 CE / Bruno Callegher

Abstract:

Ar ectangular shaped copper object in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem has been identified as a Byzantine one-ounce scale weight, or exagium, deriving from some city in the Syria-Palestine area. It has not been possible, however, to establish whether it was used in the retail trade or for checking coins. The bust of Justinian I depicted on the obverse of this albeit rather crude exagium provides its definite terminus post quem of 538 CE.

An unusual lead weight of 22 'grammata' / Lionel Holland

Abstract:

A lead weight of mass 25.7 g with the denomination '22 grammata' scratched in Greek on one face was found in Northern Israel. It is suggested that the weight may have been part of a doctor’s or apothecary’s equipment, and could have been used for compounding a medicine, which called for that particular weight of one ingredient. The historical and metrological arguments for such a hypothesis are discussed.

Metrología y sistemas monetarios en la Península Ibérica (siglos V-I a.C.) / por Bartolomé Mora Serrano

Abstract:

Based on the collection of findings made in the Iberian peninsula the author attempts to establish how the classic coinage equivalents arrived from the other side of the Mediterranean and what significant resistance they must have met with on the part of the indigenous peoples, at least in some areas, to judge by the difficulties encountered in matching the weights of the autochthonous bronze coins with the imported systems, in particular the Roman system. During a first period, up to the 3rd century B.C., there would have been a Hispanic pre-Roman coinage system giving way immediately to the pressure of the Roman system. The author emphasizes the importance of increasingly sophisticated metrological studies in the advancement of numismatic research, particularly in trying to come close to what the said autochthonous metrological systems may have been.
