Historical Background of Amole

As early as the 16th century, bars of salt money were called “amole,” after the Amole tribe that first introduced salt money to the Ethiopians.

  • Ethiopia offers the most recent example of a society circulating salt as money, a practice that lasted into the 20th century in remote areas.
  • Ethiopians are known for having a strong attraction to the taste of salt.
  • Referring to a millionaire, Ethiopians say “he eateth salt.”
  • The use of salt as money gives added meaning to the phrase “worth his salt.”
