I'd say it was the selling of dice gamling site SatoshiDice in 2013, according to the former owner it was sold for 126,315 BTC which was equivalent to ~$11,5 Million at that time.

If you mean the greatest amount of bitcoin spent, the "bitcoin pizza" comes to mind. At a whopping 10k BTC spent.

It could also be in the beginning when Satoshi probably sold a lot of bitcoins at cheap to his close friends.
