Greek translation:γραμμή ύψους 5,5 στιγμών, γραμμή 2 χιλιοστών
Explanation:
In desktop publishing and word processing, it is the term used to describe a standard print advertising space, commonly used in newspaper adverts. An agate line is one column wide by one agate in depth, or 1/14 of an inch. As the column width varies by publication, the agate line is not an absolute size.

Αν υπολογίσουμε με την παραπάνω περιγραφή, δεν φτάνουμε στα 2 χιλιοστά.
Αν υπολογίσουμε με την περιγραφή agate (US) = ruby (UK) = 5.5 points = 5,5 στιγμές (όπου η στιγμή των Αγγλοσαξόνων = 0,351 χιλιοστά), τότε είμαστε κάπου στα 2 χιλιοστά.
