In the past, a lot was used as a unit of weight and to determine the fineness of silver coins (as fine weight 62.5 g silver = 1/16 of 1000 g). Today, the term, which originates from English, is used for items such as wine that are grouped together at auctions or in a catalogue and are auctioned or sold together as one lot. This can be a find, a case or a lot assembled according to other criteria, such as a vintage collection. See also under units of measurement.
