AS
. s. m.
(On prononce l'S.) Un point seul marqué sur un des côtés d'un dé, ou sur une carte. Ces dés font petit jeu, ils n'amènent que des as. As de pique, de coeur, etc. À certains jeux de cartes, l'as vaut un ou onze, au gré des joueurs.   As, en parlant Des anciens Romains, signifie tantôt, Un certain poids, tantôt Une monnaie particulière, dont la valeur a varié dans les différents temps.
