King Ozymandias of Assyria was running low on cash after years of
war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of
the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world.
Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan.

Croesus said, "I'll give you 100,000 dinars for it."

"But I paid a million dinars for it," the King protested. "Don't
you know who I am? I am the king!"

Croesus replied, "When you wish to pawn a Star, makes no
difference who you are."
