Peter Tudebode (Participant in the First Crusade)

Food complaints written in 1097 around Antioch:
“A small loaf of bread cost a bezant of gold, and of the price of wine I shall not speak; there was not even a jug of it… The belly of one goat was worth two solidi; the tail of a ram varied in price from three to nine denari. The tongue of a camel, which is small, brought four solidi.”
