CLEOPATRA is a genius who invented multi-valued coins. To increase the money supply she simply created different valuations of coins, breaking the ancient use of weight where a coin with twice the value weighed twice as much. The markings rather than the metal content determined their value. A coin might feel light in the hand, but if Cleopatra said it was worth a tetradrachm, it was worth a tetradrachm. The arrangement was both lucrative to her and encouraged an export-driven economy.

This is the only standing statue left of Cleopatra, people say she is beautiful but they commonly mistake her for Elizabeth Taylor.
