In 49 BCE, the Medjay Bayek took his son Khemu on an ibex hunt on the outskirts of Siwa after the latter declined to accompany his friend Chenzira to visit a hyena lair. Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII was expected in Siwa that day for a ceremony, and one of the requests by the Oracle of Amun was for the pelt of an ibex stag. Demonstrating to his son the art of hunting, Bayek killed an ibex pack leader with a clean shot to the heart using his bow.
