Re: Gold Gold & More Gold

The spoils of war.

"Alexander The Great" Bye, bye, Persian Gold.

Alexander not only captured Darius' throne tent, he also found himself with Darius' complete entourage. There were 3,000 talents of gold - one talent was 27kg of metal (60 lbs) - the amount of weight that a man could carry for a whole day). Also inside were Darius' mother, Sisygambis, Darius' wife, Stateira and several other princesses and noblewomen.

81,000Kg of gold.

As for Persepolis, the capital of the Persian Empire he gave it over to the soldiers to plunder, with the exception of the royal palace.

Alexander went up to the citadel and took possession of the treasures stored there.
They were full of gold and silver, with the accumulation of revenue from Cyrus, the first king of the Persians, down to that time.
Reckoning gold in terms of silver, 2,500 tons were found there.
