didta

Unit of fluid measurement used in the Southland, recognized for many years as 2/3 of the legendary gold jar (the Gille) at Aranek. Replaced briefly (and unsuccessfully) in the late PA by the corrupt usurper kings with a unit based on the royal mouthful.

References to didta abound in simple folk practices and lore (q.v. Barriad), as well as in the historical writings. Notable examples: Eicheim’s one didta of his blood to the judges; the markings on the legendary wine mug of Rogego the Drinker; and Cahega’s dying request for “one didta of water from Mount Endam’s stream.”
