  34. Lat. In the Roman and civil law. A pound weight; and a coin originally weighing a pound, (called also "libra;") divided into twelve parts, called "unciw." Any integral sum, subject to division in certain proportions. Frequently applied in the civil law to inheritances; the whole inheritance being termed "as." and its several proportionate parts "scatans," "quadrans," etc. Burrill. The term "as," and the multiples of its unciw, were also used to denote the rates of interest. 2 Bl. Comm. 402, note m. thelawdictionary.org
  35. A word purely Latin. It has two significations. First, it signifies weight, and in this sense, the Roman as, is the same thing as the Roman pound, which was composed of twelve ounces. It was divided also into many other parts (as may be seen in the law, Servum de hoeredibus, Inst. Lib. xiii. Pandect,) viz. uncia, 1 ounce; sextans, 2 ounces; quodrans, 3 ounces; triens, 4 ounces quincunx, 5 ounces; semis, 6 ounces; septunx, 7 ounces; bes, 8 ounces, dodrans, 9 ounces; dextans, 10 ounces; deunx, 11 ounces. 1215.org/lawnotes/bouvier/bouvier.htm
  36. From this primitive and proper sense of the word another was derived: that namely of the totality of a thing, Solidum quid. Thus as signified the whole of an inheritance, so that an heir ex asse, was an heir of the whole inheritance. An heir ex triente, ex semisse, ex besse, or ex deunce, was an heir of one-third, one-half, two-thirds, or eleven-twelfths. 1215.org/lawnotes/bouvier/bouvier.htm
