Dram, unit of measure

The dram (archaic spelling drachm) was historically both a coin and a weight. Currently it is both a small mass in the avoirdupois system of weights and a small unit of volume. This unit is called more correctly fluid dram or in contraction also fluidram. The Greek drachm was a weight of 1/100 Greek mine, which is about 4.37 grams. The Roman drachm was a weight of 1/96 Roman pounds, which is about 3.41 grams. Dram (volume) is defined as 1/8 of a fluid ounce, which means it is exactly equal to 3.696 691 195 312 5 mL in the U.S. and 3.551 632 812 500 0 mL in most other Anglo-Saxon countries.
