I'm very gratified to see this passage because it sounds like what I came up with from playing around with smaller Egyptian units of measure from Wikipedia, is 1 Digit = Remen / 20, 1 Palm = Remen / 5, 1 Hand = Remen / 4. To me it just seems like a continuation of Berriman's theme of Remen fractions.

I'm putting the rest of my somewhat lengthy reply here so it's with the bulk of what I've written, in hopes that makes it easier for me to find later.
