Doctor Andrés Silvio Uribe was a Peruvian archaeologist.

Biography[edit | edit source]

At a dig in Ur, Iraq in August, 1922, Andrés Silvio Uribe's reputation was damaged when René Belloq absconded with several artifacts recovered from the site.[1]

Uribe would also come to believe that Indiana Jones, also attending the dig, had stolen his credit for the discovery of the Pu-Abi harp found there. The memory stayed with him until his death, to the point of making his two children, Francisca and Felipe, swear to ruin Jones' reputation, even requiring the man's life.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Uribe's dying wish led to the events surrounding Jones and the uncovery of the Chimu Taya Arms of Cuzco in Peru in 1937.
