    • n stater A general name for the principal or standard coin of various cities and states of ancient Greece. The common signification is a gold coin equal in weight to two drachmæ of Attic standard, or about 132.6 grains, and in value to twenty drachmæ. There were also in various states staters of Euboic and Æginetan standards. The oldest staters, those of Lydia, said to have been first coined by Crœsus. were struck in the pale gold called electrum. At the period of Greek decline the silver tetradrachm was called stater. This coin is the “piece of money” (equivalent to a Jewish shekel) of Mat. xvii. 27.
