Do you know who organised the most expensive dinner in history?

Dear Reader.

She was surely one of the greatest women of all times. She was certainly very demanding given that she required 20 servants to prepare her daily bath consisting of the milk from 700 lactating donkeys. Moreover, she used to verify the effectiveness of poisons by giving them to her slaves...

Although the dinner we are referring to didnīt earn her place in history, it was certainly one of her best performances. Her name is Cleopatra and she was the last Queen of Egypt who ruled the empire of the Nile from 55-51 BC, and her fascinating personality managed to captivate two of the greatest Roman Emperors.

The story is as follows: It came about as the result of a playful bet between Cleopatra and her husband Mark Antony, probably plainly bored from luxury and excesses. "I bet I can throw the most expensive dinner the world has ever seen, it will cost up to 10,000,000 sesterces ($500,000 on the gold standard)" she is claimed to have said. Thinking this impossible, Marc Antony accepted the bet.
When the day came, her servant placed an innocent-looking glass of vinegar and a plate on an empty table. Cleopatra calmly removed her pearl earrings, (made of rare black pearls estimated to be worth $500,000) put them in the glass and then drank the contents. Stunned, but impressed, Mark Antony was forced to admit she had won.

Probably one had to be demanding in order to rule back in those days and, surely for having your name for ever in the history books you needed a few polished and astonishing performances. Conscious of this fact, we cannot offer anything but the best performer for your high demanding applications: Series LECYM-LECYU driver. Welcome to the February edition of e-matters.
