Tier 2

Head to the northwestern part of the oasis, although before you proceed you should:

atimetoeverypurpose4

Objective: Find a way to enter undetected

Enter the cave pointed out in the picture above. Inside you will find a dead body. Steal its Roman outfit and wear it to blend in. Civilians will not be alarmed by you anymore, but guards will still be suspicious of you so avoid them entirely.

Objective: Infiltrate Sol Glorificus

Enter the city, preferably through the left entrance as there are no guards there. If you’re doing the side mission O Tempora! O Mores! remember to pick up weapons and supplies along the way inside.

Objective: Find the descendant who keeps the Ancile

Get to the large area inside the town. The route is displayed on the minimap in the picture below. Click on the man that is holding a strange object in his hand.

Objective: Steal the Ancile

Once you click on the Scion of Pompilius, he will immediately start walking up the stairs and into a building. Follow him and steal an Ancile from within the building.

Go to one of the buildings containing Anciles. We went to the nearest one:

atimetoeverypurpose12

Objective: Find a safe area outside the city to hide the Ancile

Exit the city the same way you entered it if you’re interested in avoiding guards. Hide the Ancile inside the unfinished statue.

atimetoeverypurpose13

Objective: Travel back to the present Scorched Desert

Go back to the Time Tomb and travel back to the present time.

Tier 3

Objective: Recover the Ancile

The then unfished statue should now be finished. Retrive the Ancile that hides inside of it. This will cause a cutscene to trigger.

atimetoeverypurpose14

Objective: Fight off the assailants

You will need to survive 3 waves of incoming cultists before the mission updates to:

Objective: Bring the Ancile to Saïd

You probably know where to find him by now, hehe. Go to the location marked on the map.

    SO..if you’re also doing O Tempora! O Mores! there is a Recently Deceased body behind the slaves you pass supplies off to. It died from a filth infection. If you use it it tells you “you could prevent an outbreak with some quick-acting embalming.” I haven’t found anything else to go with it yet. Any information?

    • Vomher

      That particular corpse is for the Mummies Bestiary Lore #12. This mission will be updated to account for the many new lore pieces associated it soon! In the mean time, if you want to use the body:

      While in the past, collect a shovel at ~395,660 and embalming fluid at 210,640.

      Use the embalming fluid and then bury the Recently Deceased with the shovel.

      When you return to the present, go back to the spot you found the body. A mummy will spawn that you can kill for the lore!
