When the tomb was done, the king moved in his stock of gold. One night, the builder went to the tomb. His excitement mounted. Because all the stones looked alike, he had left a distinct mark on the artificial block. The mark helped him distinguish the difference in the architecture.
The builder lifted the stone. Using a chain, he climbed into the tomb. He filled his pockets with gold.
At last he hired a guard to hide inside the tomb. When the builder entered the tomb, the guard wounded him. He climbed a pole to the roof. The builder left drops of blood in the dust. The guard followed them and caught him.
When the builder healed, he explained to the king that he didn’t keep any of the gold. He had given it all away to the poor.
