Evidence Card 0050: Ancient Seals

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

And I asked, what if I only need two measures of barley, can you make change for a penny?

And the voice said, no, but I can give you a measure of wheat with that.

But I don’t need any wheat, I said.

I can’t break a penny, the voice said.  It’s the smallest coin, you rube.

Fine.  Just some oil and red wine then.

Let me guess.  Making a salad?
