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.
