Stater

 

a unit of weight, and later a coin of ancient Greece. Staters were minted from gold, silver, or electrum (an alloy of gold and silver) and were of varying weights. The most widespread coins were the silver Aeginetan stater (12.14 g), the silver Corinthian stater (8.72 g), the gold Euboean-Attic and Macedonian staters (8.6 g), and the electrum stater from the city of Cyzi- cus (about 16 g). The term “stater” sometimes refers to the ancient Persian gold coins known as darics (8.4 g). Silver staters were worth two drachmas, except for the Corinthian stater, which was worth three drachmas.
