According to Pliny the Elder,
writing a the end of the first century AD,
Cleopatra bet Mark Anthony that
she could serve him a dinner so
expensive it would never be equaled.
The banquet was indeed luxurious but
no more so than Cleopatra
had served on other occasions.
Mark Anthony thought he had won the
bet until Cleopatra, who was wearing two
huge pearls on her ears valued at
$1,300,000 in todays money removed
one and dropped it in her huge cup
of wine where it quickly dissolved.
She drank it down and the judge
of the wager then declared that
Anthony had lost the bet !
