Introduction

(A new figure has appeared in the café: a small man in brown and green robes, drinking wine.)

I am Liutprand of Cremona, a priest of the Lombard race. In my time I was a chancellor, deacon, bishop of the holy church of Cremona, and thrice ambassador to the Greek emperor's court at Constantinople. You would not believe, O company, the injustices to which the lying, cowardly, effeminate Greeks subjected me and my party! O the tales I could tell you! O the misery I felt at the failure of my mission! And as long as anyone keeps reading my books, I will never, ever get over it.

Tell me about yourselves, my fellows so that I can talk more about myself and my most august emperor, Otto.

Nay sir! Far from being chased with silver (argent), the Greeks mix their wine with resin, pitch, and plaster!
