I need (yes, need) to watch this at least twice per year ... "Noble Romans, Men of the Tiber" when the sheik jerks Messala out of a thousand talents at 4 to 1 odds ... wonder if he ever got paid when Messala died after the race ?  6,000 denarii per talent @ .1 oz of silver ea = 600 oz per talent x 1000 = 600,000 oz x 4 = 2.4 million ounces of silver @ 12.50 /oz = approximately $30 million today !
