I'm back! Really been trying to test my power lately, thought I'd give myself a little challenge. So I just snuck into Apollo's farm, totally managed to steal his entire herd without him knowing! When they started moving i saw their hoof marks in the ground pointing right to me, and we couldn't have that now could we. So, in a stroke of genius, I put their hoofs backwards!

Phillip's son, Alexander the Great, was responsible for the burial by cremation on a funeral pyre. Once the body had been burned, the bones were washed with wine and ...
We visited a very interesting site today in the town of Vergina. Vergina became famous in 1977 when the grave of Philip II, the son of Alexander the Great, was found here. The grave is interesting and elaborate, and a museum is now open inside of the large mound of earth, which is called a tumulus. Many interesting items were found in the tombs ...
