Vae victis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vae victis is Latin for "Woe to the conquered".

In 390 BC, an army of Gauls led by Brennus attacked Rome, capturing all of the city except for the Capitoline Hill, which was successfully held against them. Brennus besieged the hill and finally Romans came out wishing to ransom their city. He decided that Romans had to pay 1000 pounds (327 kg) of gold and Romans agreed.

Gauls provided steelyard and weights, and Romans came out to bring their gold. But they noticed that weights were counterfeited and dared to notify Brennus about the issue. Brennus took his sword, threw it over the weights and exclaimed: "Vae victis!", forcing Romans to bring even more gold to fulfill their obligation.
