Headword: *dareikou/s
Adler number: delta,73
Translated headword: Darics
Vetting Status: high
Darics are gold staters; each of them had the value of what the Athenians call a "gold." They were named not after Darius the father of Xerxes[1] but after some other more ancient [Persian] king [of that name]. Some say that the daric is worth 20 silver drachmas, just as 5 darics are worth a mna of silver.
