一个新登基的国王继承了大量的黄金,他很爱这些金子,甚至想死后也占为己有。因此,他为自己以及这些金子建了一个巨大的墓穴。

然而,造墓者却怀有私心。除了大部分使用坚固的石头以外,他在墓穴顶端放了一块特殊的由轻物质做成的石头。

When the tomb was done, the king moved in his stock of gold. One night, the builder went to the tomb. His excitement mounted. Because all the stones looked alike, he had left a distinct mark on the artificial block. The mark helped him distinguish the difference in the architecture.

墓穴建好后,国王把金子全部搬了进去。有一天晚上,造墓者来到墓穴。他激动不已,因为他在看起来全都一样的石头堆上放了一个自制的标记。他凭借着这个标记作为区分。

The builder lifted the stone. Using a chain, he climbed into the tomb. He filled his pockets with gold.
