Case File: Underage Drinking

Police Reports

Case description: Ptah and Sekhmet came home after a weekend in Luxor to find Nefertem and some of his friends in jail. They'd been caught having a wild party with dancers and alcohol.

Case status: Thoth, the family lawyer, successfully pointed out in bail court that ancient Egypt has no official legal drinking age. However, Ptah and Sekhmet were not very pleased with their son's behavior and grounded him for an entire inundation season.
