6ase itself was hardly touched. Some specimens of the fragments of

Vth Dynasty, who was the builder of the temple.
Desliasheh is reviewed by Mo ret, Sphinx, iii. 170 ; Quibell's El Kab
by Maspero, Rev. Critique, September, 1899; The Ramesseum and
P/ahhetep by Maspero, I.e. In the last review Maspero notes that Marietta
had a description of the Memphite mastabas nearly complete for publication,
and some of the plates ready, but the MS. being damaged by the great in-
undation of 1878, it was destroyed by the author in a fit of discouragement
(alas !). The existing publication, Les Mastabas, is from the beginnings
of a second redaction. The Temple of Mut in Asher is reviewed by
Gr. Foucart, Revue des fitudes Anciennes, ii. 150, as is also Quibell's
Ramesseum and the Tomb of Ptahhetep in Rev. Arch, xxxvii. 171.

Drah abu'l Negga. Completion of memoir on the tomb of Sennefer
("Tomb of the Vines") : Virey, Rec. de Trav. xxi. 137; xxii. 83.
Under the title, Life of Relchmara, Mr. Newberry has published the
first instalment of the finest and most interesting private tomb belonging
to the New Kingdom in the Theban necropolis. Whether one looks to the
accuracy and completeness of the copying, the handiness of the plates, or
