Kesitah

Gen. 33:19, Revised Version, marginal note, a Hebrew word, rendered, Authorized Version, plural “pieces of money,” marginal note, “lambs;” Josh. 24:32, “pieces of silver;” Job 42:11, “piece of money”

The kesitah was probably a piece of money of a particular weight, cast in the form of a lamb. The monuments of Egypt show that such weights were used. (See PIECES.)
