The Onkia denomination
The Onkia is an ancient Greek denomination based on the Sicilian standard. In silver it weighs 0.07 grammes - but it was (exclusively?) struck in base metal.

The Onkia was worth 1/12th of a Litra, another Sicilian denomination, and has given name to the Roman Uncia, the Ounce, and the Inch, which are all 1/12ths of something.
