"This is a very special figure Stephan Berry asked for. Vespasian one of my "favorite" Emperors of Rome, hero of a lot of novels and the one who said "Money doesn't stink"

Maybe you recognize the painting by Peter Conolly?"

One of my favorite quotes as well, though my understanding is, "This coin has no odor" was his response to a minister who questioned his choice to tax the use of the Roman baths. It's also my understanding that because of this "Vespasian" became slang for a pay toilet.
