Magical Uses, Meanings, Pairings: Indicates the presence of enchanted eggs somewhere in the tomb. These eggs are typically put into a state of stasis, with the intention of keeping the unborn creatures inside alive so they can serve the deceased in the Afterlife, or protect the tomb from graverobbers. It is especially important to dispose of these eggs, as there have been reports of finding both Chimera and Basilisk eggs in tombs, likely brought over by the Greeks.
