In 48 BCE Benipe, the blacksmith of Siwa, Egypt, procured a deadly spear that was erroneously called the Pilum. This was among four specialty weapons that Benipe was able to hide from the forces of Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII when they confiscated all his tools and products, accusing him of harboring rebellion. After the Medjay Bayek of Siwa assassinated the captain in charge of this incident and recovered Benipe's tools, the blacksmith presented the Medjay with the Pilum alongside the other aforementioned three weapons: the Bitter Bow, the Gruesome Mattock, and the Phalanx Shield.
