Headword: *trithmo/rion
Adler number: tau,1017
Translated headword: third-part, tritemorion
Vetting Status: high
Philemon has stated that a third-part of the obol is 6 coppers.[1] So I wonder, myself, how a fourth-part [tetartemorion] is two coppers. but a third-part six -- unless, properly speaking, that was the name given to the fourth part of the obol, but the tritemorion, as from parts which are four, has three parts when two coppers are added [and so] brings together six coppers.

Same entry in Photius (who might therefore be the self-referential 'I'); similar but shorter ones elsewhere (including Harpokration s.v., commenting on Dinarchus fr. XIX.12 Conomis).
