A PRISON OF ARROWS: 1934.02.18
While Nikotris was imprisoned in a dungeon of the Brigands' cavern, Sathor, the Brigand chieftain, and his forty picked men followed the secret trail to their stables in a hidden valley, where they mounted their swift spirited horses. In single file they set out for the dunes of Diskara to collect the rich ransom for Nikotris which her brother, the pharaoh, was bearing to the appointed place.

Meanwhile, atop the Brigands' cave, Tarzan helplessly awaited the fatal arrows from the strong bows of his outlaw executioners. Suddenly, as the first archer bent his bow, a companion besought him to stay his shot. Tarzan was astonished. Was he to be spared after all? But the Brigands, rich in cruelties, prepared a more fiendish scheme. They placed Tarzan against a great tree and began to outline his body with arrows. 

They had agree that the archer who shot closest without drawing blood would have the honor of aiming at his heart.
