Kallipateira

Starting location: Go to the Olympics village where Kallipateira and Demeter the Priestess reside.

Walkthrough: After hearing accusations against Kallipateira and offering help, go to the location where athletes rest. Talk to two \”nameless\” civilians and Kallipateira\’s son Peisirrhodos. Also, find two documents – one confirming the version of events (Pindar\’s Poem for the Champion Diagoras) and the other, a love letter, incriminating her.

Reach the hill where the sentence is to be executed. After speaking with the priestess, you can:

  1. Provide evidence to support Kallipateira\’s version – she will be saved and you will receive Olympic Belt from her.
  2. Present evidence to incriminate Kallipateira – she will be thrown into the abyss, and you will receive Olympic Belt from the priestess.

Throwing the Bet

Starting location: Talk to bookmaker Aletes in the Olympic village.

Walkthrough: Talk to Pithekos, who will tell you about the broken javelin. You can help him in two ways:

  1. Steal a Worn Javelin from one of the buildings.
  2. Buy a Simple Javelin from a local retailer for 2000 drachmas – this is a better solution.

Deliver the javelin to Pithekos and then meet Aletes. You can bet a maximum of 3000 drachmas on the victory of Pithekos – decide to do so only if you have purchased a javelin. You will win twice that amount, i.e. 6000 drachmas. If you gave him a stolen poor javelin, you will find out from Aletes that Pithekos has lost. This way you will lose the gold you have bet on him.

No matter how this quest ends you will get a bit of gold and Olympian Breastplate.

The Drachmae of Romance

Starting location: Talk to Makar and Lelex in the Olympic village.

Walkthrough: Determine the reason for the quarrel and promise the robbed men a closer look at the recent theft. Reach the vaults. First of all, ask the Athenian guard – you can intimidate him or use persuasion.

To begin, inspect the track in one of the vaults and the track by one of the trees as shown in the picture above. Head northeast of the Olympic village to reach the Destroyed House of Oinomaos, which is presented in ruins in the given picture. Here, you will encounter young lovers – Mennon and Laneira, and later Marak and Lelex. You have two options: either complete the contract and kill the young lovers or oppose the heads of the family and murder Marak and Lelex. In both cases, you will receive gold and a Conflict Spear.

For the Gutter Runner quest, talk to a merchant in the Olympic village, and while you are conversing, a girl named Maia will pickpocket you. Follow her and promise to retrieve the lost necklace. Reach the hostile Endymion Camp south of the Olympic village, kill the captain of the camp, and search his corpse to find Maia\’s Mother\’s Necklace. Return the necklace to her to receive Olympic Sandals as a reward.

In The Message, the Stick, and the Artist quest, talk to Phidias in his workplace in the Olympic village, and then go to the Temple of Zeus to examine the statue of Zeus. Return to Phidias to find out about the next statues that need to be examined and receive some gold as a bonus.

After completing The Message, The Stick and The Artist quest, Art Leading Life quest begins automatically. There are three new statues to check, and you can reach them in any order. The Kytheran Statue of Artemis is located on the Kythera Island, and the interactive area is on the back of the statue. Reach the Statue of Poseidon, which is on a small island located north of the island of Samos, and climb it to find the interactive area at the trident held by the statue. The Thasian Statue is located on the Thasos Island, and the interactive area is at the back of the statue.

Finally, the Journey\’s End quest begins automatically after completing Art Leading Life quest, where you need to investigate Phidias\’s corpse and find Scytale, which is a quest item that can help solve the mystery.

To start your journey, you need to head to the island of Lemnos and make your way to the Ancient Stronghold. This is the base of the cultists and it\’s best to eliminate them first. Your objective is to reach the building located in the upper part of the fort, as shown in the picture.

Upon reaching a room with six buttons and a closed gate, you will encounter a puzzle that needs to be solved. You must press the buttons in the correct order, and a clue regarding the order can be found on the Scytale plate located in your inventory.

The correct order of pressing the buttons is shown in the picture above. Buttons 1 and 2 are on the left while buttons 3 and 4 are on the right.

Once the puzzle is solved, the metal gate can be opened. In the next room, you will find a large chest containing a unique treasure – the legendary Atlantean Blade. This blade provides a +15% increase in hunter damage, a +25% increase in critical damage, and a +30% increase in armor penetration. In addition to the blade, completing the quest will also reward you with gold.
