What’s a Log of Oil?

Leviticus 14:10, “And on the eighth day he shall take two male lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb a year old without blemish, and a grain offering of three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, and one log of oil.” ESV

“A log was about 1/3 a quart or .3 liter.” ESV Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible Notes

I like it when they explain measurements in today’s terms because then I can picture it. A log would be about a cup and a third of oil.
