How did Cleopatra get to meet Caesar?

Caesar summoned Cleopatra to Alexandria in an effort to mediate the civil war between Cleo and her brother. Since Cleopatra was under a death sentence, she had herself smuggled into Caesar's quarters. There are differing versions of exactly how she did this. Some say she was wrapped in a rug, others say she was wrapped in a straw mat and yet others say that she was carried in a laundry bag. You can take your pick as to which method she used.
