A quadrans of Augustus

| 41a 41b 41c | 42a 42b | 43a 43b | 44a 44b 44c |

12:41 And having sat down opposite the "treasury" ...
  he considered how the crowd cast "copper" into the treasury.
  And many rich ones cast a lot.
12:42 And one poor widow who came cast in two leptas ...
  which is a quadrans.
12:43 And calling his disciples before him, he said to them ... Amen I say to you ...
  this poor widow cast in more than all the ones casting into the treasury.
12:44 For everyone cast in out of their abundance ...
  but this one out of her poverty ...
  everything, as much as she had, she put in "all her life."
