English term or phrase:as nearly as may be in equal shares
Aus einem Testament:
D. All other jewelry owned by me at the time of my death that is not otherwise hereinabove disposed of that contains a diamond or diamonds, I give and bequeath to my said second cousin, x, and her daughter, y, who shall survive me, to be divided between them *as nearly as may be in equal shares* in such manner as they shall agree upon.
Explanation: I am not proposing a translation as such, but this is what it means.
Obviously something like jewellery containing diamonds cannot be exactly apportioned, neither physically nor in terms of value, but the PR is to be as fair as possible so that x and y remain on speaking terms.
