  1. plural of lepta
    • 1837, George Cochrane, Wanderings in Greece, volumes 1-2, page 296:
      Comparatively speaking, the Greek peasantry are wealthy; — a circumstance which, in most cases, produces contentment in the matrimonial state. I say wealthy, because, even in the interior of the country, a peasant can always gain his drachma per day; out of which he will buy an oker of bread (two pounds and a half,) which will cost him twenty-four leptas; he will then purchase five leptas' worth of olives []
    • 1839, William Knight, Oriental outlines, page 78:
      There are but two masters, one of whom speaks a little French and the other Italian. These masters are paid eighty drachmas a month from the funds of the adjacent church, and the parents of each scholar, according to their station in life, pay ten, fifteen, or twenty leptas for the same period.
