Greek Lead Weight, c. 350 - 40 B.C., Battle Scene with Soldiers and Horse
The weight is the gold equivalent of one mina of silver. This would be true when the ratio of gold to silver was 10 to 1: from the time of Philip II of Macedon to the time of Julius Caesar. Unusual, and worthy of further study.
