“I LOVE YOU, CLEO” ENGRAVED ON A MEDALLION
An Egyptian chef discovered a medallion of Roman origin, dating from the Julius Caesar’s Empire, when preparing to cook a shark he had bought at a market.

The medallion shows on a side the profile of the head of a woman with a laurel wreath, while on the other side is read an inscription, which said: I LOVE YOU, CLEO.

According to Manuel Escamilla Romerales, concierge at Old Archaeological Museum in Roma, the medallion was a gift which never got Cleopatra’s neck.

This medallion and other presents were boarded on a ship to Egypt as a big present from Marco Antonio to Cleopatra, and because of a strong storm the ship wrecked in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Really, this medallion must be valued at millions of dollars,” told me Manuel.

I interviewed Azeneth Mandonguilla, the chef at the “Nefertiti Restaurant” who discovered the medallion and told me:

At first I thought on keeping the object for after selling it on the black market, for sure that it would have retired me from the kitchen for passing the rest of my life in a paradisiacal beach, but I like too much my profession, so I gave it to the Egyptian Museum.”

It is admirable that in times of crisis there are some people still who, although founding a bag full of money, want to continue to earn their lives honestly, and thank you to men like Azeneth we can discover new things from our past history.
