Summary: 1920's Egyptology AU - Athos is an archaeologist working for the British Museum, Porthos is a tomb robber/black marketeer working for Richelieu. Whilst each is well known in his field, up to now they've never met - until both set out on the trail of the long-lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Athos has come into possession of an ancient inscription which indicates the possible location of the tomb - Porthos must steal it from him if he's to be in with a chance of getting there first, but Athos turns out to be not quite the academic pushover he's expecting. To make matters worse, they're not the only ones on the trail of the tomb - which might rather inconveniently also have a curse on it.
