History Of Egypt From 330 B.C. To The Present Time, Volume 11 (of 12)

Augustus began his reign in Egypt in B.C. 30 by ordering all the statues

of Antony, of which there were more than fifty ornamenting the various

public buildings of the city, to be broken to pieces; and it is said

he had the meanness to receive a bribe of one thousand talents from

Archibus, a friend of Cleopatra, that the queen's statues might be

left standing.
