My name is Attalus. I am Alexander the Great's Royal Page.
Alexander has ordered me to “pack and plunder” for his next trip. I have to find 15 special objects.
Use the clues to find each special object.
Each special object has a code number.
Enter the code number to see if you are correct!
If you can’t find an object, look out for this secret symbol nearby.
Alexander’s horse! Before we go any further, we have to find Alexander’s horse (he is drawn very ‘flat’).
We need to find a helmet fit for a king. Alexander does not want any cheap bronze stuff.
Alexander needs enough silver Macedonian coins to pay the army (until he scores some more loot from his battles).
For inspiration, Alexander wants us to pack the statue of his feasting great-great-great grandfather (who is also his hero).
We need gold Persian jewellery for Alexander’s sisters, preferably showing their royal rank (or they’ll complain).
Alexander needs more Persian coins to pay his men. Find the most recently dated coins.
We need a 'pair' of something from the provinces for Bucephalus. Wicked Mardians stole him as a joke!
We need something for Alexander’s old tutor Leonidas, to go with the 18 tonnes of incense Alexander sent him from the city of Gaza.
We need some small portable 'pictures' of Alexander (showing his ‘godly’ side) to hand out to Alexander’s new subjects.
We need something silver from the ‘markets’ to hold the perfume Alexander got for his mum.
While we’re at the markets, we need a cup for drinking wine. Make sure it’s stronger than clay!
Bad news! We need to send Cleopatra a small statue of the goddess of love to help heal her broken heart.
Alexander wants to send a picture to his mum from ‘the east’ showing him as a hero with the dying Darius.
Alexander needs an extra copy of his favourite book as it is getting a bit ragged (look inside a picture to find it).
And for our last item, we need to find a timepiece suitable for Alexander the Great.
Good choice! You have found the correct object. Time to find the next one.
Looks like you plundered the wrong object! Go back and try again.
Well done! You found all the objects. Alexander the Great will be very happy!
Thank you for taking the time to contact us here at the Australian Museum.
We hope you enjoyed your Alexander the Great Experience!
