Treasury of Scripture

Also twenty basins of gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine copper, precious as gold.

fine copper.

precious.

Lamentations 4:2
The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!









(27) A thousand drams.--Darics, and therefore the whole worth rather more than a thousand guineas.

Fine copper.--Probably the Roman Orichalcum, a metal very highly valued.

Verse 27. - Twenty basons of gold, of a thousand drams (see comment on Ezra 2:69). The "basons" would be worth about £55 each. Fine copper, precious as gold. The metal intended is probably that known to the Romans as orichalchum, which is generally believed to have been brass, but which may have been a more complicated amalgam. Being rarely, and perhaps only accidentally, produced, this metal was highly valued.
