[Hebrew, מָנֶה] An ancient Hebrew unit of weight, the Hebrew version of the mina, possibly 571 grams (20.15 ounces). In the written record, it does not seem to have seen as much use as the kikkar and siqlu.
Ezekiel 45:12 defines it. In the King James version it is translated as “maneh” and in the RSV “mina.”
And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.
Ezekiel 45:12 (King James)
The shekel shall be twenty gerahs; five shekels shall be five shekels, and ten shekels shall be ten shekels, and your mina shall be forty shekels.
Ezekiel 45:12 (Revised Standard Version)
In the Assyrian “light” system of units of mass, about 502 grams. Half as much in the heavy system.
