Throwing the Bet Quest Walkthrough
Starting location: Talk to bookmaker Aletes in the Olympic village.
Talk to Pithekos, who will tell you about the broken javelin. You can help him in two ways:
- Steal a Worn Javelin from one of the buildings.
- 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.
