Museum Description Edit
When quarrying began many centuries ago, this jewel was discovered deep within the bowels of the deserts. Convinced of greater wealth deeper down, the king who ordered the excavation caused the deaths of thousands of slaves. Only after these innocent lives were lost did he concede that no more treasure would emerge from the depths. - Abydos Museum
Journal Description Edit
One of the stolen Abydos jewels. - Book of Sphinx
- The Jewel of Uraeus is the fifth donated jewel to the Abydos Museum.
- A Uraeus, depicted as a Cobra, is a symbol of power in Lower Egypt. It is also known to be a symbol of Ra.
- Despite the name of this jewel being related to a Cobra, it is in the shape of a green-winged scarab beetle.
- This jewel reveals that this version of Egypt, at least, did in fact use slaves (contrary to the Bible, the actual Egypt used paid workers for things like mining and construction).
