A Greek silver coin, the six-thousandth part of a talent. There were two drachmas: the Attic, its value a little less than 20 cents; and the Æginetan, equal to one and two-thirds of the Attic drachma. Mentioned in the Old Testament when Judas sends 12,000 drachmas to Jerusalem that sacrifices may be offered for the dead (2Macabees).
