Abstract: The restriction on -primary components in the Artin-Verdier duality theorem [**2**] has been eliminated by Zink [**9**], who has shown that the sheaf of units for the étale topology over the ring of integers of any number field acts as a dualizing sheaf for a modified cohomology of sheaves. The present paper provides an alternate means of removing the -primary restriction. Like Zink's, it involves a topology which includes infinite primes, but it avoids modified cohomology and will be more directly applicable in the proof of a theorem of Lichtenbaum regarding zeta- and -functions [**4**, **5**]. Related results--including the cohomology of units sheaves, the norm theorem, and punctual duality theorem of Mazur [**6**]--are also affected by the use of a topology including the infinite primes. The corresponding results in the new setting are included here.
