This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: Chapter Xv. Of The Feast Of Cleopatra; Of The Melting Of The Pearl; Of The Saying Of Harmachis; And Of Cleopatras vow Of Love. On the third night the feast was once more prepared in the hall of the great house that had been set aside to the use of Cleopatra, and on this night its splendour was greater even than on the nights before. For the twelve couches that were set about the table were embossed with gold and those of Cleopatra and Antony were of gold set with jewels.

Thus it came to pass that I, the Pharaoh, crowned of Khem, stood among eunuchs and waiting-women behind the couch of Egypts Queen while the feast went merrily and the wine-cup passed. And ever Antony sat, his eyes fixed upon the face of Cleopatra, who from time to time let her deep glance lose itself in his, and then for a little while their talk died away. For he told her tales of war and of deeds that he had doneay, and love-jests such as are not meet for the ears of wom. . . This item ships from multiple locations.
