Ingot

Late Middle English term for ‘to pour or cast in’. Specifically, it refers to the casting of metal into a mould (See: Oxford Dictionary and Merriam Webster).

The result was a metal, often oblong piece that could be used as currency. Silver ingots have been found in many Viking hoards across Europe (See: J. Graham-Campbell and G. Williams Silver Economy in the Viking Age (Abingdon: Routledge, 2016)).
