Heplanomis and the Arsino'ite nome to the strategi in his district, inclos-
ing an order for public rejoicings and sacrifices on the accession of
Perlinax (a.d. 193). Professor Mommsen also re-publishes the Latin
military roll of the year 156, giving the strength of a cavalry cohort
stationed at Apollinopolis, which he had already published with commen-
tary in the Ejjhaneris Eirigrajiliica (vii. 456-467), and which also appears
in the facsimiles of the Palaeographical Society (2nd series, No. 165).

Among articles dealing with the previously published Berlin papyri
may be mentioned one by Mommsen, discussing Nos. 267, 326, and 388 ;10
and the last of these documents is also the subject of an article by
M. Dareste." Professor Wilcken's publications are this year limited to
a single article, based upon Berl. Pap. 15, in answer to Professor
Gradenwitz.15 Some very useful work has been done by Dr. Paul Meyer
in bringing together some of the results to be gathered from the Berlin
and other papyri on the marriage privileges of the Roman soldiers in
Egypt under Trajan,'3 the list of the Prefects of Egypt, which the papyri
enable us to correct and amplify,14 and the meaning of the rather obscure
technical terms kutoikoi and eViV/atcn?.'5 Another new worker in the
field of papyri has appeared in the person of Mr. Stanislaus Witkowski,
who, as an appendix to an essay on the grammatical importance of Greek
papyri, has published a number of corrections to papyri already edited,
especially those of Paris, of which the texts in the Notices et Ex-traits are
notoriously imperfect.18 M. Theodore Reinach, as once before, follows
Wilcken in discussing a papyrus relating to a Jewish embassy to the
Emperor Claudius (cf. No. 6 in last year's Report).1'

The Greek inscriptious found by Professor Petrie at Koptos in 1893-4
have been edited by Mr. Hogarth,13 the largest and most important of
them being a table of the tolls imposed on traffic by the great caravan
road from Koptos to Berenice on the Red Sea. This inscription, which
is now in the Gizeh Museum, has also been edited, with five others (two
in metre), by M. P. Joqgnet.19 Other inscriptions found in Egypt have
been published by MM. Cm gnat2" and Schwarz."1 and a collection of
ostraka by M. H. Grailh t *1

Professor Mahnffy's history of the Ptolemies, which was noticed in
last year's Report, has been quickly followed by another work on the
same subject by Dr. Strack but this I can do no more than barely
mention, not having yet had an opportunity of reading it. A single
aspect of the Ptolemaic dynasty is treated in a magazine article by
Dr. Kaerst,-4 who traces back the conferring of divine honours upon the
sovereign to the time of Alexander himself; and the foundation of
