How many victory points is a leader with cost "A" worth at the end of the game when he was mummified with the Abu Simbel wonder?

There does not seem to be a definitive answer to this question in the rules as written as far as I can tell.

I can see two possible solutions:

1. At the end of the game, we are in age III, so a mummifyed leader with cost "A" yields 6 VP.

2. The players have to remember which age the leader was recruited in and he yields VP based on that (2 VP if he was recruited in age I, 4 for age II, and 6 if he was recruited in age III).

I prefer the first solution because I regard the need to remember the age the leader was recruited in as unelegant.
Moreover, the cost "A" leaders would otherwise be unattractive with Abu Simbel. I prefer the potential for a reasonably attractive "Abu Simbel insurance" in case it turns out you don't profit from a cost A leader in the end. (Many of them are designed in a way that they can be useless and the later in the game you are, the better you can tell whether that is the case.)

What would you say? Any word from

Very interesting question.

I also lean toward option 1, because:
- it bears no memory issue and
- it does not hamstring one of the wonders.

Good question and good guess !
You score at the end, so A=3 and those cards worth 6VP with Abu.
We'll add that point in the FAQ, you're right to bring it up !
