MEASURES

Lenght

- Ah-il and Ah-rah

"Cloth is measured in the ah-il, which is the length from the elbow to the tip of the middle finger, and the ah-rah, which is ten ah-ils."
"Tribesmen of Gor" page 50

- Gorean Foot

"The Gorean foot is, in my estimation, just slightly longer than the Earth foot; based on the supposition that each of its ten Horts is roughly one and one-quarter inches long, I would give the Gorean foot a length of roughly twelve and one-half inches, Earth measure."
"Raiders of Gor" page 127

- Hort

"The hort is approximately and inch and a quarter in length."
"Tribesmen of Gor" page 49

A Weight is ten Stone." >br>"Raiders of Gor" page 127 "A given tree, annually, yields between one and five Gorean weights of fruit. A weight is some ten stone, or some forty Earth pounds."

"Each cylinder, roped to others, weighed in the neighbourhood of ten stone, or some forty pounds, a Gorean “Weight.”"
