Von Bissing, Rec. xxiii. 38, on the history of the formula of libation.
Spiegelbeeg, 0. L. Z. iv. 9, suggests that the name of the Egyptian
royal "jubilee," hh-scl means "the feast of the tail," and may refer to the
ceremonial assumption of an animal's tail by the king, a view for which
there is evidence.
Eeman, A. Z. xxxviii. 53, prints some interesting passages from late
Alexandrian authors, pointed out to him by Schone and Diels, which refer
to a belief that certain bronze rings attached to the entrance of a temple
purified him who turned them.
Lefebube, Sphinx, v. 1, on the sacred tree of Heliopolis generally

Legeain, Rec. xxiii. 62, on groups of king and Amen at Karnak, with
figure of Amen mutilated by Akhenaten, in one case—that of Amenemhat I.

page the same writer publishes an inscription referring to a temple of
Aten at Hermonthis. Ib. 64, he writes on the colossal statues of Amen
and Anient at the north gate of the pro-sanctuary at Karnak, set up by
Tutankhamen, apparently to replace those destroyed by Akhenaten. They
were afterwards usurped by Horemheb.

Spiegelbeeg, 0. L. Z. iii. 447, derives the name of the Aa/3vpiv8o<; in
the Faiyum from Aa^apr^ (Ne-m".t-Rl), the name of Amenemhat III.,
whose temple it was. (iST.B. The Cretan name seems to have been derived
