      Dear all,

      Does anybody know roughly the modern weight equivalent to the do.na
      mentioned in Pali texts ? Scholars working with classical Indian sources
      such as the manu-sm.rti and Kautilya's Artha`sastra give values between 9
      and 13 kilos.

      Best wishes,
      Stephen Hodge
