I know it's been out for a while, but I was just re-listening to Skin Game and realized I could not identify all the referenced artifacts found
In Hades vault
Some were easy, some less so. Any ideas?
For the record they were:
- “ancient wooden placard”
- a “circlet woven from thorny branches”,
- a “clay cup”,
- a “folded cloth”, and
- a “knife with a wooden handle and a leaf-shaped blade”
I don't have the quote handy, but I recall that they were all related to the crucifixion of Christ in some fashion.
The ones revealed in the text are:
the cup is the Holy Grail
the folded cloth is the Shroud of Turin
I figure the circlet is the Crown of Thorns placed on Christ's head by the romans, and I assume that the wooden placard with faded inscriptions reads INRE (allegedly a label placed on him as well, for the latin for Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews), but those are guesses. I originally thought the "knife" was actually the tip of the Spear of Longinius, but it's described pretty consistently as a knife rather than just a blade.
Those are my guesses, though; do we have anything else that I missed in the text or from interviews, etc?
