    So, if that currency conversion is right, a talent equals $260K? That means in the scriptural parable of the talents, they weren’t talking chump change.

    Kinda …low rent, t’ain’t it?

    Not for nuttin but CPAs run $250 & up, lawyahssssssss $450 & up, some sys analysts I’ve known $800 & up — including pizza…

    I hear she’s on the short list for Time Man *cough* Man of teh Year. For being 30, a “student” unable to carry her own weight & publicly demanding Other People pay for her $9/month BC….

    Sounds about right, come to think.

    Why does “have to tie a pork chop around her neck to get the dog to play with ‘er” keep flashing into my mind?

    Their math is off. An Athenian talent (which was a unit of weight) was ~26 kg, so 250 talents is about 6,500,000 grams. This tribute/fine/extortion was almost certainly 250 talents of silver, which is running about $1/gram. So about $6.5 million in today’s money, but that would’ve been fantastic wealth back then. That must’ve been some piece of ass.
