This is a list of all of the Antiquities that are found in the Glenumbra.

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Orc: Bows Value 13
Ugron gro-Thumog
If stories are to be believed, Torug gro-Igron loved bows and became proficient while hunting game. Most of the time he's depicted wielding dual axes, but that might be artistic interpretation.

ON-icon-furniture-Glenumbra Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Glenumbra Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Map of the Direnni Hegemony, circa 1E 484. I note some discrepancies in the topography. There are some, shall we say, natural borders that don't align with the current lay of the land, or maps drawn a mere twenty years after.
Verita Numida
I concur. These irregularities are taking great liberties with the region. This map from the same year omits Camlorn entirely. This hardly seems like a mere oversight. I believe this was a deliberate attempt to obfuscate their shrinking territories.
Amalien
The Direnni had some of the most powerful mages in the world at the height of their reign. Maybe they weren't just changing the maps? What if their Camlorn really did disappear? Like the Dwemer? Or Artaeum? Maybe we'll find it! Wouldn't that be something?

ON-icon-stolen-Figurine.png Name Manmer Coupled Idol Value 250
Amalien
How odd. This figure of an Elven woman bears hallmarks of Aldmeri depictions of Mara, but it's too rudimentary. Was it the work of a child? Maybe it was unfinished.
Gabrielle Benele
That's Nedic sculpting, actually. Devotional idols were common, though I've never seen one depicting an Elven Divine before. Her pose suggests she's in a lover's embrace. It's clear that there's another piece to this figure.
Amalien
You were right! This new figure fits snugly with the Mara, but I never expected her lover to be a Man! Is he meant to be Lorkhan? I don't think I've ever seen evidence of Aldmeri culture being welcomed with such open ... arms.

ON-icon-stolen-Male Portrait.png Name Rislav Tryptic Panel Value 1,000
Reginus Buca
I'm intrigued by the religious overtones in this depiction of Rislav smiting his brother Dorald. I'd always assumed the appellation "Rislav the Righteous" was ascribed to him by historians, but this panel dates to the time of his rule.
Verita Numida
Your penchant for assumption is intolerable, Reginus. Dorald was a priest of the Alessian Order who attempted to impose a theocracy on the Colovians. Rislav's defiance of the Empire was seen as the rebuke of a tyrannical cult.
Reginus Buca
So Dorald's hirsute appearance is symbolic, as a stand in for Marukh. I suppose Rislav's unlikely victory over Emperor Gorieus's legions were viewed as divine favor. Did you notice Queen Belene's resemblance to Gabreille in the coronation panel?

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Orc: Chests Value 13
Ugron gro-Thumog
Orcs are just rediscovering these kind of precise metalwork techniques. They were lost to us during the fall of Orsinium in 1E 980, and it is only by historical accounts such as these that we're able to reclaim them.

ON-icon-furniture-Jeweled Skull of Ayleid Kings.png Name Jeweled Skull of Ayleid Kings Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Well, this is quite a discovery! Ayleid, by the looks of it. Sorcerer kings ruled the Tamrielic heartlands for centuries, but I've never seen one of their crowns. It seems fixed onto the skull, but I don't see any rivets.
Gabrielle Benele
I doubt any amount of strength could yank that crown off, Reginus. It's spell-locked. Tight. It probably has to do with all this meteoric glass. Do you see the inset stones? They're exerting force on the iron.
Verita Numida
No great surprise there. The Saliache were a proud and possessive people. Reign rarely passed to heirs without some kind of arcane intrigue. Perhaps this king suffered a devious, over-ambitious son and sealed the crown onto his head as a final insult.

ON-icon-stolen-Trinkets.png Name Physnatic Scroll Case Value 5,000
Gabrielle Benele
Direnni scholars have long held the belief that Prince Aiden's brilliance as a strategist was what carried the day for his vastly outnumbered forces, but a controversial theory speculates that the Direnni army's movements on the battlefield bordered on prophetic and attributes their success to superior methods of communication. The enchantments on this case suggest it is an anchor for some form of teleportation. If only I had another to test the idea.

ON-icon-stolen-Ring.png Name Band of Water Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
Too small to be a ring. It almost looks like a ring's ring, as odd as that sounds. It seems like it's made from the same material as the other charms from the area. Does this have anything to do with the Wild Hunt?
Verita Numida
Wood Elves caught up in a Wild Hunt ritual supposedly change into strange animals, but some say turning into water is also one of their capabilities. This might be a depiction of a Bosmer that has become ... liquified.
Amalien
Yes! I've heard of Bosmer changing into fearsome waves of blood instead of animals! Wouldn't that be amazing to see? I mean ... horrifying, yes. But still, what a sight!

ON-icon-quest-Pendant.png Name Goblet Gorget Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
Typically, a gorget would sit closer to the throat and fully encompass the neck. This wide scoop would offer limited protection from anything other than arrows deflected upward after striking the carapace. It would provide ample room for a bulky helmet.
Reginus Buca
It's not my area of expertise, I know, but it seems that there is a deliberate gap between the plating and where it would sit on the collar. Honestly, it reminds me of a drain basin. What purpose would that serve?
Amalien
I just cleaned some rust out of that channel, Reginus, and it turned out to be dried blood. Finding it on bits of used armor isn't unusual, but what if it really is a drain? If the owner was a vampire, feeding in battle would be messy business, I think.

ON-icon-furniture-Kingmaker's Trove.png Name Kingmaker's Trove Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
King Emeric has a trove quite similar to this. Most people never get to see it, of course. But you'd be surprised how far a well-placed invisibility spell can get you in Wayrest Castle!
Ugron gro-Thumog
Judging by the filigrees, I'd date it back to the 1E 2200's. I've seen paintings of Bretonic All-Flags warships with similar patterning around the prow. This coffer may have contained a bounty for a captain who participated in the attack on Thras.
Verita Numida
I've seen the paintings you're referring to Ugron. I agree, the patterning is similar. But this tree-shaped relief gives me pause. I wonder if this contained a bribe for nobles who helped Merchant-Lord Etien Lenac claim the throne of Wayrest in 1E 1270.
