    2000 years ago, Roman soldiers received part of their pay in the form of salt, sugar, etc. I just took a can of black pepper out of my kitchen cabinet and on the can it says Great Value (it's a cheaper generic brand) and it occurred to me that what would have been worth perhaps $100's 2000 years ago now cost me $2.49 :thumbs:
