WIDOWS MITE 103-76 B.C. BIBLICAL COIN "And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast In much. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two Mites...And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all she had."
