The eel figurine was an Atlanteans device of unclear purpose. It had the form of a coiled serpent with an open mouth; inserting an orichalcum bead in the orifice would raise the temperature of the artifact's mass.
History[edit | edit source]
A similar relic was found in Atlantis in an alcove in one of the rooms of the outer ring. At the flooded doorway, Jones inserted an orichalcum bead in its mouth and throws the searing hot figurine to evaporate the flood waters, deteriorating the figure into scrap metal.
