A precious metal, even more precious in the World of Isles than on earth because metals are scarcer. Silver is worth 1200 obols per kilogram. Silver is used for jewellery and money.

Throughout the Classical Period an important part of the income of the emperor comes from a rich silver-and-lead mine on the imperial estate near Mount Taygetus, and Gehennum exports large quantities of silver. By the Decadent Period this mine is worked out, and once more Gehennum mines only small quantities, and is neither a net importer nor exporter.
