The Steward's Potion is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is a miscellaneous quest received from Bothela in Markarth in which the Dragonborn must deliver a potion to the steward of Markarth.


  1. Deliver the Stallion's Potion to Reburrus Quintilius


Speak to Bothela about the name of her shop. She asks the Dragonborn to deliver a Stallion's Potion that she brewed to the Steward Raerek or Reburrus Quintilius.

Go to Understone Keep and meet a steward, inform him of Bothela's delivery, and give him the potion. In return, he offers 250–750 GoldIcon as a reward.
