COIN VALUES

Coin values can be expressed as approximate values, as there are indications in the Scrolls (John Norman's Gor books) that values may be higher. Coins of higher denomination are most often referred to as "tarsk," "tarn," or simply by the metal they are cast in (such as silver).

COSMETICS

While most Free Women seldom use make-up, there are quotes that show some do, particularly in the high cities. Nail lacquer is included, since it is not expressly forbidden and is well within the ability of an apothecary, or chemist, to make. Though the listings are directed mostly to Free Women and slaves, men might also find some of the items of use, more specifically, city men. Scents can be custom ordered or open stock, such as a light, fresh scent, for use by those that do not want a particular scent.
