Histamenon

  • English: In the 960s, a lighter-weight (by 1/12) solidus was issued in parallel with a full-weight solidus, both preserving the standard of fineness. The lighter coin was called a tetarteron (Greek for "quarter") and the full weight solidus was called the histamenon ("standard").
  • Italiano: Negli anni 960 fu emesso in solido più leggero (1/12) parallelamente a un solido a peso pieno; entrambi mantenevano lo stesso titolo precedente. La moneta più leggera fu chiamata tetarteron (in greco "un quarto") e quello a peso pieno fu chiamato histamenon ("standard").
