Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The ordinary value of the ἀσσάριον was 1/16 of the δηνάριον , but Dittenberger OGIS ii. p. 108 n..14 shows that the imperial silver denarius might be exchanged for 17 or even 22 provincial copper asses. The word can be quoted from Syll 869.5 (Calymna, Rom.) ἐὰν δὲ μὴ [παραμείνῃ ] (sc. the slave whose manumission is in question), ἀποδώσει ἑκάστης ἡμέρας ἀσσάρι (α ) δ ̄ ib. 871.5 (Smyrna)—a decree regarding a Trust which had reduced a ferry fare from two obols to two ἀσσάρια , or ¼ denarius to 1/8 den. so as to undercut competitors (Dittenberger). Other instances are needless.
