On the trail of Arthur Harrow and his troops, Marc/Steven teamed up with Layla to explore Ammit’s tomb in Episode 4, dubbed The Tomb. Marc/Steven and Layla are confronted by a terrifying presence of undead Egyptian priests as they enter the tomb, and they must move further into the tomb to escape their clutches. Steven begins hunting for the god’s ushabti in the hopes of preventing Arthur’s resurrection of Ammit, which leads him to the huge sarcophagus of Alexander the Great, as identified by the Macedonian scriptures. Steven establishes that Alexander the Great was Ammit’s voice and proceeds to locate the ushabti in his corpse’s throat.
Alexander The Great
Alexander the Great was the ruler of the ancient Greek state of Macedon, sometimes known as Alexander III or Alexander of Macedonia. Alexander, considered one of history’s greatest military commanders, launched a war to conquer Western Asia and Northeastern Africa, defeating the Persian Empire and defeating King Porus in the Battle of the Hydaspes. During his reign as king, the monarch established twenty cities, each carrying his name, including Alexandria, Egypt.
There is substantial debate about how Alexander the Great died, with some sources stating the monarch was poisoned and others blaming malaria or typhoid sickness for his demise. Alexander’s remains was originally interred at Memphis, Egypt, in a gold anthropoid sarcophagus, since the monarch admired Egyptian culture. His sarcophagus was later transported to Alexandria, where it is thought to have resided for a long time. Despite the fact that Alexandria was Alexander the Great’s ultimate resting place, the king’s tomb has remained a mystery, with some believing it was destroyed in the 4th century.
