Old measure of copper coin (5)


I believe the answer is:


'old measure' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'copper coin?' is the wordplay.
'copper' becomes 'cu' (chemical symbol).
'coin?' becomes 'bit' (term for various historical coins).

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for cubit that I've seen before include "two such might have been in the yard" , "Measure of length by which Noah's ark was described" , "Measurement based on the length of the forearm" , "Biblical length of approximately a forearm" , "Old forearm measure" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
