Treasury
   (Matt. 27:6; Mark 12:41; John 8:20). It does not appear that
   there was a separate building so called. The name was given to
   the thirteen brazen chests, called "trumpets," from the form of
   the opening into which the offerings of the temple worshippers
   were put. These stood in the outer "court of the women." "Nine
   chests were for the appointed money-tribute and for the
   sacrifice-tribute, i.e., money-gifts instead of the sacrifices;
   four chests for freewill-offerings for wood, incense, temple
   decoration, and burnt-offerings" (Lightfoot's Hor. Heb.).
