English term or phrase: hides
12 hides of land (monada metrisis)

χάιντ
Explanation:
Αυτά δεν μεταφράζονται.
Αλλά ιδού πληροφορίες από το OED:
A measure of land in Old English times, continued also for some time after the Norman Conquest, varying in extent with the nature of the ground, etc.: primarily, the amount considered adequate for the support of one free family with its dependants; at an early date defined as being as much land as could be tilled with one plough in a year. See carucate.
The question of the extent of the hide has been much controverted. The general conclusion appears to be that it was normally = 120 acres; but the size of the acre itself varied. See Maitland, Domesday and Beyond.
