Arad 4: Order for Allotment of Supplies (3.43D)

To Elyashib. Give to the Kittim one (jar of) oil.1 Seal (the jar) and send it. Also give them one b(at-measure) of wine.

Notes

^ back to text1. The text is “šmn /,” where the oblique stroke indicates the number, but with no indication of the measure. Since the standard abbreviation for bat-measure is not used in these texts when oil is mentioned, it is quite possible that oil was circulated in containers of a different size.
