### History

The history of the ounce traces back to ancient Rome, where it was originally based on the weight of one Roman ounce of gold or silver. It was derived from the word "uncia" which means "twelfth part". A standard copper bar was used to define foot and pound in the Roman era. This bar was subdivided into twelve equal parts or unciae. Eventually these uncia became the standard for defining the common ounce.

Over time, different regions developed their own versions of the ounce, leading to variations in size.

Today, the most common types of ounces are the avoirdupois ounce (used in the United States and other countries) and the troy ounce (used for precious metals like gold and silver).

### Use

Ounce is not as widely used as it was before. It is still used in many parts of the world mostly for measuring food items or postal packages.
