Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

קְשִׂיטָה f. Genesis 33:19; Joshua 24:32; Job 42:11, pr. something weighed out; hence used of some certain weight (compare כִּבְרָה, שֶׁקֶל, מָנֶה) of gold and silver, which, like the shekel, was used for money in the age of the patriarchs. It may be supposed to have been heavier than the shekel, and to have contained about four shekels, from the passages Genesis 33:19, 23:16, compared together. According to Rabbi Akiba (in Bochart, in Hieroz. t. i, 3, c. 43), a certain coin was also in a later age called in Africa Kesita. The ancient interpreters almost all understand a lamb; but for this signification there is no support either in the etymology or in the cognate languages; nor does it accord with patriarchal manners, since in their age merchandise was no longer exchanged, and real sales were common for money either weighed or counted (Genesis 23:16, 47:16 ); see the arguments against Frid. Spanheim in Hist. Jobi (Opp. III, page 84), well brought forward by Bochart, loc. cit. A coin bearing the figure of a lamb, which was thought of late to be the Kesita by Frid. Münter (in a Dissertation in Danish, on the Kesita, Copenhagen, 1824), I consider to be a coin struck in Cyprus, of which kind more are extant.
