Excerpt from The American Numismatic Manual: Of the Currency or Money of the Aborigines With Colonial, State, and United States Coins; With Historical and Descriptive Notices of Each Coin or Series

The date of the change in Greek money from weight to positive coins, Of specific and guaranteed value, cannot be determined° but as Homer states, that an ox was exchanged for a bar Of brass of certain size; that a woman who understood several useful arts was Of the value of four oxen; that the brazen armor of Diomedes was of that of nine oxen, and the golden armor of Glaucus of that of one hundred oxen, we must conclude that a positive coinage did not exist in his time; while the allusion in the laws of Lycurgus to gold and silver coins prove that they were then in use; and hence, then, between these two epochs, we must place the invention of coined money.
