Coin Shows Antony and Cleopatra in Plain Light Antony and Cleopatra has long been regarded as one of history's most romantic couples. Shakespeare portrayed them as both powerful and seductive. Hollywood cast Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to play the roles. Today, at the Shefton Museum , a 2000-year-old coin went on display, revealing the ugly truth. One side of the coin captures the image of Antony, one of the Roman triumvirate. The other side shows Cleopatra, the Egyptian Queen.

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
