Cleopatra’s handwriting goes on display

London: Two fragments of papyrus, which feature the handwriting of Cleopatra, have gone on display.

The document has the Greek inscription, "make it happen" which refers to a tax break for a friend of her husband Mark Antony.

It is one of 150 artifacts in the exhibition, reports The Telegraph.

Some of the items in "Cleopatra - the Search for the Last Queen of Egypt" which runs until January, have never been on public display.

"The story of Cleopatra has drama, trauma, sex, murder and war," said John Norman, president of the show designer Arts and Exhibitions International. "What could be better than that?"

The artifacts have been unearthed from the Egyptian town of Taposiris Magna.
