      Gene Savoy, an amateur archaeologist whose success in finding some 40 Incan and pre-Incan ruins in Peru was matched by a flair for self-promotion that drew on his tales of peril in the jungle, his bandito mustache and Stetson hat, and a retinue of would-be explorers who paid to accompany him, died on Sept. 11 at his home in Reno, Nev.
