Bathed it exclusively in waters filled with fragrant ointments or essence of saffron, and to warm their apartments ordered the burning Indian incense without coal. The luxury of its peers Heliogabalus eclipsed everything that had happened before. Not once in his peas served with golden balls, beans - with amber rice - with white pearls and fish instead of pepper sprinkled with pearls and truffles. Dogs, he commanded to feed gras and horses in a manger pour anameysky grapes.
