04/29/11 Grif.Net – Egyptian Artifacts

Some years ago my family and I visited Egypt. Did the pyramids, Egyptian
Museum (with King Tut treasures), the Sphinx, etc. At a bazaar shop we were
told that many of the items on sale were cheap reproductions for tourists,
but others were genuine.

Holding up a curious find, I asked, “Is that really the skull of Cleopatra?”

“Yes, surely,” the dealer guaranteed me of its authenticity. “And at a
bargain price.”

As I walked around the shop I spotted a smaller, yet identical skull and
asked, “What about the small one there?”

He quickly replied, “That’s also from Cleopatra – but I think when she was
still a child!”
