History Edit

There were a total of six jewels that belonged to the Abydos Museum. A grand unveiling was to take place, but it was thwarted when it was discovered that someone had stolen them. Later on, it was uncovered that the Mayor's Advisors had taken them to the Castle of Uruk, and Tutankhamen had to retrieve them and give them to Bas-Ket, who would in turn deliver them to Sphinx.

Jewel of Memphis So many people claim to be the rightful owner to this jewl that a Djadjat tribunal was held in Thebes, for which there was a record number of three hundred and twelve defendants. So confused was the Great Kenbet, who presided over the case, he eventually entrusted it to the Abydos Museum, for which his cousin, the Mayor, is grateful.

Reward: A Gold Ankh Piece

Jewel of Edfu Legend tells us this jewel was encased in a stone that fell from the skies, many years ago. While there is little to support this, the crater in which it was discovered does form the same shape as the jewel itself.

Reward: A Gold Ankh Piece

Jewel of Siptah Ownership of this jewel is said to enchant those who carry it with unfailing honesty. The legendary bandit Siptah donated this jewel to the meuseum, before turning himself in to the autorities, confessing to over two hundred criminal acts...

Reward: A Parasol

Jewel of Uraeus 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.

Reward: A Gold Ankh Piece

Jewel of Weni This enchanted, cobra-headed jewel was discovered on a battlefield protruding from the chest of a fallen king. Used to deliver the fatal blow in a war that left no survivors, nothing remains of the tribe who forged it.

Reward: A Gold Ankh Piece


  • Most, if not all, of the jewels are protected by a fire-related trap. When the Mummy finds one of the Jewels, he is almost instantly transformed into Fire Mummy.
    • The only Jewel not protected by fire is the Jewel of Shu.
  • It is unknown why Set had the Jewels stolen, as most of them are simply jewelery with no known special powers (aside from the Jewel of Siptah).
  • The Jewel of Siptah is merely an assumed fan name, as the Jewel Inspector never mentioned the name. Its name comes from the jewel's original owner, Siptah.
