A merchant has come to the Market, but one of their baskets contains something more dangerous than Grain.

Identify the basket correctly for a chance to win 3,000 Drachmas! View the image and post your answer on our Forum.

All the baskets, no self respecting merchant takes there own baskets to be sold, they get a slave to do that for them. The Merchant must be a Persian spy, since he has no slaves of his to command.

So though the first Basket seems to be broken and the most dodgy, it would have already been inspected by the Marketplace guards, the second seems to be stuck down by a sign and since guards probably can't read, they inspected it, just to be safe it doesn't contain any poisons and nay tax has been paid on it, if needs be. The third just looks like a normal basket, so the guards wouldn't have inspected it after inspecting the previous two baskets so thoroughly.

So i pick the 3rd basket to be containing a dangerous item.

I suggest whipping the merchant/ Persian spy for information, he might have more dangerous baskets around.

Also whip the guards, they should have done a better job.

the middle basket has slightly different shadows and lifting its lid would drop the sign, pulling or freeing  the danger within
