Dolia

 

a territorial unit in Russia and subdivision of a guberniia (province). It was instituted in 1710 in order to facilitate the uniform collection of taxes, the levying of troops, and the carrying out of other measures. In accordance with the census data of 1678, which established that there were 812,131 taxable homesteads in Russia, all the territory of the country was divided into 146.7 doll. Thus, each dolia comprised 5,536 taxable homesteads. As a territorial unit the doli were abolished in 1775, when the gubernii were divided into uezdy and distrikty.


Dolia

 

a unit in the old Russian system of weights. It was equal to 1/96 ofazolotnik, or 1/9,216 of a pound. It was used in Russia until the introduction of the metric system of measures. The unique division into 96 parts indirectly reflects the influence of the ancient number system with base 6, which also influenced units of length and time, among others. A dolia is equal to 44.435 mg.
