This page describes an obsolete unit.

The unit described on this page was in use prior to modern methods of precision measurement. It was based on a standard which is no longer available, and which is not capable of being calibrated against modern measurement units. Therefore, the equivalence to modern SI units or to current United States customary units can only be considered approximate.



The lijne (spelled "lyne" by Cardarelli[1], probably in error) was the smallest unit of length in the old Dutch system.
