The first object of the present Report is to give to the sub-
scribers in a convenient and collected form some account of the
recent excavations of the Egypt Exploration Fund and of the
work of the Archasological Survey. Secondly, it is desirable
that members should be informed of the progress made during
the past year in studies connected with Egyptian archeology.
In two departments, that of Greek MSS. discovered in
Egypt, aud that of Coptic studies, we have had the help of
Mr. Kenyon and Mr. Crum, friends who are not connected with
the Fund, but whose work is well known to all who are in-
terested in these subjects. To tbem we owe our best thanks.
It may be here mentioned that a detailed catalogue of the
Greek papyri in the British Museum is about to be issued under
the editorship of Mr. Kenyon; and that Mr. Crum has begun
a similar work for the Coptic MSS.
To EEerr Emil Brugsch the thanks of the members are also
due for his interesting communication of the discoveries in the
excavations at Memphis and elsewhere, as well as for the
photograph of the magnificent statue reproduced at p. 25.
