TALENT
Form: Gr. talanton, Lat. talentum; lit. "the balance," and "the thing weighed ".
The Greek term for (1) the highest measure of weight; (2) the designation of a sum of money consisting of a number of coins originally equal to it in legal weight and value. It was divided into 60 minoe or 6,000 drachmoe. Among the different talents in use in Greece the most widely spread was the Attic, of which 1/6000th part (drachma) weighed 57 1/2 lbs. [The intrinsic value of the metal contained in this sum of money was about £200.] (See COINAGE.)
