    Cleopatra, 3rd Printing, Painted Cover. Art by Norman Nodel. (HRN 166, with 8/67 date). In ancient Egypt, the royal line of the pharaohs had been driven from their throne by the Persians, who were routed in turn by the Greeks. Harmachis, the last descendant of the royal Egyptian dynasty, vowed to regain his kingdom and drive the foreign queen Cleopatra from the country. But he had not reckoned on the bewitching beauty of Cleopatra. For Harmachis, all the great kingdom of Egypt and the treasure within were not equal in worth to the queen's love. Cover price $0.15.
