Memoir on Excavations.
Kojotos, by W. M. F. Petrie, is a publication of the results of work at
Coptos in 1893-4, and stands in little need of recommendation. The
plates are excellent, and do full justice to the beautiful work illustrated.
The strange reliefs on the primitive statues of Min are given in photo-
type and in hand copies. It appears that Professor Petrie still prefers
to date Antef V. in the Xlth Dynasty, in spite of Steindorff's arguments
for a XHIth Dynasty date (see below, p. 27). Mr. Hogarth contributes
an important chapter on the Greek and Latin inscriptions.
