bishop Matheus' treasure

The year 1166. The bishop Matheus, devoted to the revels and wassails, was visited by the deputies of the Polish prince Boleslaw, requesting from him money in the name of the monarch. He took his housholders and brought them to the toilet so that they look for his treasures there. "Here are my treasures" - he said, letting them know that all his bishopric incomes have been passed through his throat and stomach and it was useless to request money from him.
