Sakkaueh. A collation has been made of the published texts of the
inscriptions in the pyramids with the squeezes preserved in the
Bibliotheque Nationale. This collation, which extends over a large
part of these immensely long and difficult texts, is very important and
valuable, and shows that where squeezes were available Professor
Maspero's edition contains very few errors of copying (Lange, A. Z.
xxxiv. 139).

Naukratis. Hieroglyphic inscription on a statue mentioning the Greeks,
with several obscure place-names (Daressy, Bee. de Tr. xix. 21).

Benevento (Italy). Two obelisks set up before the temple of Isis for
the safe return of Domitian from the Dacian war, in his 8th year :
interpretation of the difficult and curious text, with full commentary
(Erman, A. Z. xxxiv. 149).

Home. Inscription on the obelisk of Antinous (the Barbarini obelisk),
edited from two published copies and translated (Erman, Mitth. d. Deutsch.
Arch. Inst. Rom. xi. 115). The writer shows that, contrary to the received
opinion, this obelisk was set up in Rome originally, and that the tomb,
or at least a cenotaph of Antinous, was at Rome. Huelsen thereupon
(p. 122) endeavours to locate the tomb of Antinous, and would place it
at the S.E. corner of the city where the broken obelisk appears to have
lain in the 16th century.

A stela of the Xllth Dynasty at Munich, and another from the
Anastasi collection, republished from Deveria's copies in the Louvre
(A. H. Gardiner, Bee. de Tr. xix. 83).

A stela in the British Museum, with name o£ Sebekemsaf II. and a
short dedication to the Sun god ; the stela is of very curious form, with
sides converging to the pointed top (Ceum, P. S. B. A. xviii. 272).

Inscription of Nebuaui, under Thothmes 111., with a reference to the
9th year of Queen Hatshepsut (Spiegelbeeg, Bee. de Tr. xix. 97). The
same writer also notes some objects inscribed with the name of Senmut,
the architect of Hatshepsut {ibid. 91).

Wiedemann publishes two stelae at Geneva, one containing a solar
hymn, and the other being engraved for a scribe of provisions o£ King
Amenhetep I. (?). In connexion with the latter the writer gives a long
note on the scribe's titles (Bee. de Tr. xviii. 123).

The latest part (liv. 33) of the sumptuous publication of the Leyden
Museum contains the mummy and three coffins of Petiisis (7 plates,
1 coloured).

Dukinge gives the inscription on a ushabti in his collection (Bee. de
Tr. xix. 8G).
