The fundamental myths of the conquest of America were based upon one fundamental principle: the existence of a region located on the fabulous equator strip. The need to find gold in those unknown regions was a major boost in the process of conquest and was one of the strongest motives, and perhaps the most important one. Based on the concept ficciones de archivo proposed by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarría (2000), this paper addresses how myths of conquest are updated in Crónica de músicos y diablos (1985) written by Gregorio Martinez (Nasca, 1942).
