Dear "how much is a talent of silver worth today,"

Silver prices change daily, so you really need to know how to do the math to get an accurate figure.

One Greek talent (as best I can find referenced) = 82 pounds 4 ounces.

(Reference: [Link](Mouse over link to see full location))

Therefore one talent = 1,316 ounces. But WAIT, there is more... silver is traded in Troy ounces, which are completely different than the standard ounces we use every day.

So 82.25 lb = 1199.479 t.oz

As of April 18th, 2007 the spot price for silver: $13.96 per ounce.

1199.479 t.oz * $13.96 per ounce = $16,744.72684 per talent.

I hope this helps you better understand the madness involved in calculating silver values from ancient measuring systems. :-)

Don't bet your life on my "how much is a talent of silver worth today" measurements. It all looks good from here, but a little further research wouldn't hurt you a bit.
