The Egypt Exploration Fund, which has conducted archaeological re-
search in Egypt continually since 1883, now proposes to establish a special
department, to be called the Graeco-Roman Branch, for the discovery and
publication of remains of classical antiquity and early Christianity in Egypt.
While it is intended that further exploration shall proceed hand in hand
with publication, the first work of the new department will be to publish
the large and valuable collection of Greek papyri discovered this year by
Messrs. Grenfell and Hunt at Behneseh (the site of the ancient Oxyrhynchus),
of which the Logia may be regarded as the first-fruits.
The Egypt Exploration Fund would propose to issue annual volumes,
each to consist of about 300 quarto pages, with facsimile plates of the more
important papyri, under the editorship of Messrs. Grenfell and Hunt.
A subscription of one guinea will entitle subscribers to the annual
volume, and a donation of £25 will constitute life membership. Subscrip-
tions may be sent either to the undersigned, or to the honorary treasurers of
the Egypt Exploration Fund—for England, Mr. H. A. Grueber; and for
America, Mr. F. 0. Foster.
