Acquiring by a popularly recognized method of transaction - Situmta

Note: As Rashi Bava Metzia 74a explains, "situmta" actually refers to a mark made by wine merchants on their barrels, to identify them as having been sold. However, Tosafot in Bava Metzia 66a "uManyumi" explains that this action represents a class of actions which are popularly recognized as methods of transaction, even though they are not identified as such in the Torah.
