Denominations of silver drachma

Post by alsadeekalsadouk on Sun Sep 20, 2015 9:08 pm

The weight of the silver drachma was approximately 4.3 grams,[12] although weights varied significantly from one city-state to another. It was divided into six obols of 0.72 grams, which were subdivided into four tetartemoria of 0.18 grams, one of the smallest coins ever struck, approximately 5–7 mm in diameter
