In volume six of the Son of Samson comic, Branan, disguised as a Philistine sentry, overhears Pathrus and Sidon's plans to raid the holy city of Shiloh for the ark of the covenant. With the help of his lion friend, Branan manages to escape the Philistine army camp and ride to Shiloh to warn the tabernacle priests of the upcoming siege. Unfortunately, Branan discovers that no warriors are left in Shiloh to defend the ark, as they are all in the town of Shechem protecting that settlement from Philstine invasion.

About the series
Find out more about the Son of Samson comic and how it was made
Yehude, Zackeus, and Mizraim are three Hebrew boys from Gezer whose acts of vandalism and rebellion against the ruling Philistine class tend to land the local Hebrew community in hot water. When the three boys pelt Sidon with fish as an act of political resistance during his trip to Gezer, he retaliates by doubling the tribute of grain the Hebrews of the town must pay to the local temple of Dagon.
Far from deterring Yehude, Zackeus, and Mizraim from their acts of civil disobedience, Sidon's harsh reprisals only serve to fan the flames of the boys' desire to strike back at Philistine tyranny. Sneaking into the temple of Dagon, Yehude, Zackeus, and Mizraim plaster the idol with mud, then brag about their deed to Zarah and Branan, who've just returned from a fruitless fox hunt.
