Abstract: Discussion of dry and liquid capacity measures in Judah/ the Bible/ ANE; LMlk jars; Bath, hin and other capacity measures existed already in the Iron Age; Albright estimation of bath as c. 20 liters was right as an inscribed jar from Lachish prooves. Tehre were no "lamlk stamp systems" or "jar handle systems" of administration in Judah - administaration was not sitting in a Shphelah pottery workshop obsessed with stamping (carelessly!) a minory of lmlk type jars; but in Jerusalem, issuing orders and writing on papyry which did not survive.
