Corpus Ponderum Antiquorum et Islamicorum Turkey 3 Part 1

151 s/b levha, İngilizce.

There are over five thousand weights from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Collection at the Pera Museum, ranging in date from the Ancient Near Eastern Civilizations, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk, and Ottoman periods. This large collection will be published in a number of separate volumes as part of the series of Corpus Ponderum Antiquorum et Islamicorum. The present catalogue is the first volume, covering 635 Greek and Roman weights. The Roman truncated spheres, however, were excluded from the present catalogue and will be included in the second volume, which will cover the Late Roman and Byzantine weights. The majority of the weights in the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Collection were acquired over a period of thirty years by İnan Kıraç through various local and international auctions and collectors.

The catalogue is arranged in two sections: the first covers weights in the Greek standard, and the second, weights in the Roman standard. The Greek standard weights (407) are more numerous than the Roman standard weights (228). Some of the Greek standard weights belong to the cities of western Asia Minor. For example, while the cities of Lysimachea, Abydus, Alexandria Troas, Cyme, and Smyrna are represented by one or two weights, the weights of Cyzicus, Myrina, Ephesus, and Miletus are larger in number. But one may suppose that most of the weights without a civic symbol or ethnikon were also produced or used in the cities of western Asia Minor. In addition, weights that bear denominational marks on them (i.e. mna, hemimnaion, tritemorion, tetarton, hektemorion, ogdoon, tristateron etc.) are common in the catalogue. Weights of the Roman standard are made up of the litra and its multiples/subunits (i.e. litra, dilitron, semis, uncia, half-uncia, siliqua, scripulum etc.). Some weights of the Roman standard bear an inscription in addition to its unit mark so they need detailed further study epigrapically, which has been intentionally omitted from the catalogue.  Oğuz Tekin
