Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Piece
1: ἐπίβλημα (Strong's #1915 — Noun Neuter — epiblema — ep-ib'-lay-mah ) primariy denotes "that which is thrown over, a cover" (epi, "over," ballo, "to throw"); then, "that which is put on, or sewed on, to cover a rent, a patch," Matthew 9:16 ; Mark 2:21 ; in the next sentence, RV, "that which should fill" (AV, "the new piece that filled"), there is no word representing "piece" (lit., "the filling," pleroma); see FILL , B: Luke 5:36 .
2: δραχμή (Strong's #1406 — Noun Feminine — drachme — drakh-may' ) a drachma, firstly, "an Attic weight," as much as one can hold in the hand (connected with drassomai, "to grasp with the hand, lay hold of," 1 Corinthians 3:19 ), then, "a coin," nearly equal to the Roman denarius (see PENNY), is translated "pieces of silver" in Luke 15:8,1 st part; "piece," 2nd part and Luke 15:9 .
3: μέρος (Strong's #3313 — Noun Neuter — meros — mer'-os ) "a part," is translated "a piece (of a broiled fish)" in Luke 24:42 . See BEHALF , PART.
4: κλάσμα (Strong's #2801 — Noun Neuter — klasma — klas'-mah ) "a broken piece" (from klao, "to break") is used of the broken pieces from the feeding of the multitudes, RV, "broken pieces," AV, "fragments," Matthew 14:20 ; Mark 6:43 ; 8:19,20 ; Luke 9:17 ; John 6:12,13 ; in Matthew 15:37 ; Mark 8:8 , RV, "broken pieces" (AV, "broken meat").
5: ἀργύριον (Strong's #694 — Noun Neuter — argurion — ar-goo'-ree-on ) which frequently denotes "money," also represents "a silver coin," of the value of a shekel or tetradrachmon (four times the drachme, see No. 2); it is used in the plural in Matthew 26:15 ; 27:3-9 . In Acts 19:19 , "fifty thousand of silver" is, lit., "fifty thousand of silver" (probably drachmas). See MONEY , SILVER.
Notes: (1) In Acts 27:44 , for AV, "broken pieces," the RV translates epi ("on") tinon ("certain things") ton ("the," i.e., "those namely") by "on other things;" there is no word in the original representing "pieces." (2) For the phrase "to break to (in) pieces," Matthew 21:44 , RV, and Mark 5:4 , see BREAK , A, Nos. 10 and 5 respectively. (3) In Luke 14:18 , AV, agros, "a field" (RV), is translated "a piece of ground." (4) In Matthew 17:27 , AV, stater, "a shekel" (RV), a tetradrachmon (see No. 5, above), is translated "a piece of money."

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Piece of Silver
I. In the Old Testament the word "pieces" is used in the Authorized Version for a word understood in the Hebrew (if we except) (Psalm 68:30 ) The phrase is always "a thousand," or the like, "of silver." (Genesis 20:16 ; 37:28 ; 45:28 ; Judges 9:4 ; 16:5 ; 2 Kings 6:25 ; Hosea 3:2 ; Zechariah 11:12,13 ) In similar passages the word "shekels" occurs in the Hebrew. There are other passages in which the Authorized Version supplies the word "shekels" instead of "pieces," (22:19,29; Judges 17:2,3,4,10 ; 2 Samuel 18:11,12 ) and of these the first two require this to be done. The shekel, be it remembered, was the common weight for money, and therefore most likely to be understood in an elliptical phrase. The "piece" or shekel of silver weighed 220 grains, or about half an ounce, and was worth a little more than half a dollar (55 cents). II. In the New Testament two words are rendered by the phrase "piece of silver:"
Drachma , ( Luke 15:8,9 ) which was a Greek silver coin, equivalent, at the time of St. Luke, to the Roman denarias (15 or 16 cents).
Silver occurs only in the account of the betrayal of our Lord for "thirty pieces of silver." ( Matthew 26:15 ; 17:3,5,6,9 ) It is difficult to ascertain what coins are here intended. If the most common silver pieces be meant, they would be denarii. The parallel passage in Zachariah, (Zechariah 11:12,13 ) must, however, be taken into consideration where shekels (worth about 55 cents) must be understood. It is more probable that the thirty pieces of silver were tetradrachms than that they were denarii (80 cents).
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Piece of Gold
The rendering "pieces of gold," as in (2 Kings 5:5 ) is very doubtful; and "shekels of gold") as designating the value of the whole quantity, not individual pieces is preferable. Coined money was unknown in Palestine till the Persian period.

The most important Piece of external evidence is contained in Sir 48:22-24 . 1 35 is a book formed not entirely, or perhaps even mainly, by the collection and free re-arrangement of prophetic Pieces, but rather by the incorporation whole of earlier and smaller books. 6 and Isaiah 8:1-8 we have what there is no reason to question are Pieces of Isaiah’s autobiography; Isaiah here speaks of himself in the first person. 5, originally quite distinct Pieces, or dividing, as in the case of Isaiah 9:8 to Isaiah 10:4 , what formed an undivided whole.

Doctrines - 29), ‘His teaching is that in His appearance and active life which is necessary to make that life intelligible to us, and without which the Apostolic teaching about Him would be only a sum of dogmatic utterances which we could not comprehend and whose truth we could not prove,—a result not a little awkward for that view which contrasts “the teaching of Jesus” as Christianity proper with the Apostolic “teaching about Christ” Taking due account of these considerations, we may yet gather from the sources at our disposal, the simple narratives of the Synoptic Gospels and the more elaborate narratives and discourses of the Gospel of John, sufficient materials to enable us to Piece together a scheme of the doctrine of Jesus as He taught it and as it was understood by His immediate followers
