I gave the Snow Cone of Mount Kilimanjaro its third vote. It didn't look like a snow cone, and had such an artifact existed in real life, it would have evaporated long before reaching the temple. At least you could tell what the Lost Lariat was, even if it was not a very inspiring artifact. And much like the Lost Lariat, I felt that the Snow Cone didn't tie in (haha, bad pun) with the legend. Overall, I felt that the Snow Cone was less related to its legend and less realistic in appearance.

I voted for the Lost Lariat as well. Sure, the snow cone looks stupid, but my problem with the Lost Lariat is that it's just a rope. Nothing really inspiring about a simple rope.

What if Legends was brought back in 2002? You get Legends of the Hidden Temple: Unearthed (updates every one to two weeks, on Wednesdays)

I think we have enough votes now to declare the Lost Lariat the winner. Congrats to Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat, you are the worst artifact on the show! I am actually glad in a way that it won since at least the Snow Cone has some sort of design.

Here is how I see it:

#1 - "Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat" (good)
#2 - "The Snow Cone of Mt. Kilimanjaro" (good, although I wouldn't have mind to see it win)
#3 - "The Collar of Davy Crockett" (Good, and WTF at using a Pendant as part of the artifact)
#4 - "The Missing Weather Maps of Charles Lindbergh" (Good, I expected a S2 Map to be more creative)
#5 - "The Keys to the Alhambra" (Good)
#6 - "The Shriveled Hand of Efoua" (Good, although it gets a reward for creepiest artifact ever)
#7 - "The Secret Battle Plan of Nathan Hale" (Good, even though we never get a close up_
#8 - "The Treasure Map of Jean Lafitte" (A little lower)
#9 - "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" (good)
#10 - "The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth" (Higher, it was so lame and uninspiring)
#11 - "The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma" (lower, it was neat to look at kind of)
#12 - "John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine" (good)
#13 - "The Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith" (good)
#14 - "The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible" (maybe a little lower, at least it had some detail)
#15 - "The Paintbrush of Leonardo da Vinci" (good, maybe a couple of spots higher)
#16 - "The Cracked Crown of the Spanish King" (good)
#17 - "The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh" (good)
#18 - "The Lost Logbooks of Magellan" (higher, I can't even make out what it is)
#19 - "Robin Hood and Marian's Ladder" (good)
#20 - "The Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman" (good, the stick was pretty detailed)
#21 - "Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand" (good)
#22 - "The Dried Apple Half of William Tell" (good, maybe a little higher)
#23 - "Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth" (good, maybe a little higher)
#24 - "The Lost Whale Bone of Pytheas" (good, doesn't really belong on this list)
#25 - "The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I" (good, doesn't really belong on this list)
