: Maybe the shield of Achilles. Legend has it that when Alexander entered the city of Troy he came across weapons of the Trojan war.
: In particular was the Sheild of the Homeric hero Achilles. In regards to the Oracle of Delphi
: Alexander's father Phillip captured or actually "freed" Delphi. Maybe the Pythians gave Philip's son a gift?

: All in all it offers a good leaping place for an excellent storyline.

: It is hard to figure on an object that gave him such supremecy as a leader.
: Alexander's greatness was due to his genius as a general and his bull-headed
: persistence. Never-the-less, he was known to attack with super-human speed
: and had a great hold over his men, that is, until they demanded to go home.

: Maybe the 'mythical' artifact corrupts as well as strengthens?? Interesting.
: A storyline like that could take Indy to some new archeological destinations like
: Babylon's ruins, Egyptian temple at Memphis, Alexandria, Persepolis, Troy, even back to Delphi.
: Include an appearance of Sallah possibly?

: ---Troy

: "Kratisto"

Speaking of Egyptian, I'm working on a story (Indiana Jones story, of course)called "Indiana Jones and the Quest For Tut's Tomb." It will even have pictures! If anybody is interested, e-mail me at --Ben, friend of Indy
