accono [Italian]

In the city of Altoluogo [present-day Aya Solnq, in Turkey], 14th century, a unit of length used for cloth, about 0.7 meters.

Canne 1 di Firenze fae in Altoluogo anchone 1 e 5/12.

One Florentine canna is 1 5/12 accone in Altolugo.

Pegolotti, 1340, as quoted in Edler, page 23.

Assuming the Florentine canna of 1340 was about 2.3 meters, the accono was about 0.7 meters.
