הִין m. a hin, a measure of liquids containing [“the seventh part of a Bath, i.e. twelve Roman sectarii”] 12 לֹנ, 2 Attic χόες (according to Joseph. Ant. iii. 9 § ). Numbers 15:4, sqq., 28:5, Numbers 28:7, 14 Numbers 15:14; Ezekiel 4:11. LXX. Εἴν, ἴν, ὗν. Its etymology is doubtful. It may be derived from הוּן as being a light, small measure. [This reason is rejected in Thes.] [“This corresponds to the Egyptian hn, hno, which signifies prop. vessel, and then a small measure, sectarius, Gr. ἵνιον. See Leemans, Lettre a Salvolini, p. 154. Bökh. Metrol. Untersuch. pp. 244, 260. But it is not certain that these Hebr. and Egypt. measures were of the same size.” Ges. add.]
