Drachma

Additional Links
(drach' ma) The Greek term used to refer to the silver coins (Luke 15:8-9 ). It was a Greek unit of silver coinage that, during the time of the New Testament, was considered equivalent to the Roman denarius. In 300 B.C. a sheep cost one drachma, but apparently by New Testament times the drachma was worth much less. See Coins ; Economic Life .
