SENINE

Lehite noun		Gold currency, ca. 82 BC (Alma 11:3; 3 Nephi 12:26)

No etymology is suggested. A Hebrew root such as snn or śnn would be ideal. 

ṣll, “to lift up, exalt, raise, gather, cast up (into a heap)” or ṣlh, “to lift up, suspend (a balance), weigh.”  See also the more likely post biblical Hebrew ṣnh (=Arabic ṣny), “to 
lift up, elevate” (JAT), though I have not been able to find this root.

A possible, but unlikely, candidate for the origin of Senine is Egyptian snw, a kind of jar (JAT), though the unit of measure, volume, is not the same as the Book of Mormon 
unit of measure, mass.

Cf. Book of Mormon Senum, Seon
