Judean Kingdom, Alexander Jannaeus (Yehonatan), 103 - 76 B.C.
Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow put more into the treasury than all the others. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on." (Mark 12:41) The lepton was the smallest coin in Jerusalem during Christ's lifetime. Biblical scholars believe this type is the Widow's Mite.
