Simon Templeton is an unscrupulous archaeologist and treasure hunter located in between the landslide and stairs up to the Agility Pyramid. The Pyramid is in the Kharidian desert, south of Nardah, and north-east of Sophanem.

The quickest way to reach Simon Templeton is to use the Jaleustrophos teleport of the Pharaoh's sceptre (Jaleustrophos is the ancient name of the Agility Pyramid).

Always interested in valuable items, Simon will buy the gold pyramid retrieved by players who have completed the agility course in the Agility Pyramid for 10000 coins, as well as any items obtained during the Pyramid Plunder minigame in Sophanem. He will buy noted items if you have the desert amulet 1.

These are the amounts he pays for each Pyramid Plunder item:

Type Ivory Pottery Stone Gold
Comb 50 x x x
Seal x x 150 750
Scarab x 75 175 1000
Statuette x 100 200 1250


  • His surname is likely a play on the word "Temple," due to him being found near a pyramid.
  • Mark Ogilvie stated that his appearance on Bargain Hunt in 2004 may have inspired the character of Simon Templeton.[1]
  • He is described as a thief by the guards in the Sophanem bank.
