"The promised night should well have been a splendid one, for all the joys and pleasures possible in a human lifetime were to be concentrated into the space of a few hours. It was necessary that the life of Meïamoun should be converted into a powerful elixir which he could imbibe at a single draught. Cleopatra desired to dazzle her voluntary victim, and plunge him into a whirlpool of dizzy pleasures; to intoxicate and madden him with the wine of orgie, so that death, though freely accepted, might come invisibly and unawares."

- Théophile Gautier, Une nuit de Cléopâtre, 1838

Art: Cleopatra Testing Poisons on Condemned Prisoners by Alexandre Cabanel, 1887
