Synopsis:
Groo wanders onto some ancient ruins and encounters Taranto and his men, who have been hired by a King Witt to find the treasure of the buried Kantor royalty. Groo ineptly "helps" them, but fails to stop them from being attacked by a patrol of Kantor warriors, large and fierce ape-men. Groo eventually defeats every Kantor in sight and assumes he has slayed them all. Groo then finds an ornate crown and, because he is an idiot, thinks that it is the entire treasure. Taranto sends Groo off with the crown and he and his men dig up the rest of the enormous treasure to steal it for themselves.

Groo takes the crown to King Witt, who tells him about the true scope of the treasure. Groo runs back to the burial site and finds that Taranto and his men have stolen everything. Furious, Groo returns to King Witt and brings him and his army to attack Taranto and take the treasure back. At this time, however, Taranto and his band are confronted by many more Kantor warriors - as it turns out, what Groo defeated was only a patrol. The issue ends with Groo and King Witt eagerly waiting for Taranto to step around a corner with the treasure, not knowing that he is followed by far too many Kantor warriors for even Groo to handle. Everyone is obviously about to get a savage beating, which is left to the reader's imagination.

Reprinted/Collected in:

Notes:
On page 27, the dialogue in the Kantor language is an anagram of "This is the hidden message for this issue. There is one in every issue since number four, says Mark!"
