In earlier times we find the use of silver most prevalent. It was currency, or money. For the purchase of Hebron, Abraham weighed the price in silver, current money with the merchants. Of gold and silver large quantities were used for ornaments of the person, and the adornment of temples also for ransoms, tributes, and taxes. Sums or weights of silver and gold are noted which indicate that the mining industry of the Egyptian, Assyrian, Persian, Jewish, Grecian, and Roman empires was cc-extensive with their greatness. The city of Damascus paid a tribute of talents of silver to Babylon (a talent is nearly), and according to Pliny, Cyrus obtained £7 7 from the con quest of Asia. From Herodotus we learn that the yearly tribute paid to the Persians was lbs in silver. During 50 years Carthage paid as tribute to Rome lbs, Troy, of silver. Calig ula ornamented the armor and weapons for his grand circus or coliseum with lbs of silver.
