Progress of Egyptology.
that with it were found near the Serapeuni a sarcophagus with marble
head, clearly of a Phoenician of the fifth century. The sarcophagus had
apparently been re-used, like the Phoenician sarcophagi at Sidon.
Khahape also was probably a Phoenician. A. Z. xl. 31.
Max Muller has published a new edition of the treaty of alliance
between Eameses II. and the Hittite Khetasir, Mitth. d. Vorderasiat.
Gesells. 1902, 193 (part 5). In 0. L. Z. 1903, 304, he describes a
Phoenician gem found at Luxor.
Max Muller, in the series Der Alte Orient, has given an interesting
sketch of the ancient Egyptians as warriors and conquerors in Asia, the
unwarlike character of the native Egyptian being especially dwelt on.

Lange translates into Danish Golenischeff's papyrus of Wen-Ainon's

Petrie, P. S. B. A. xxiv. 317, discusses the names of the Hittite allies,
etc., in the battle of Kadesh.
Hall, in a paper on Keftiu and the peoples of the sea, holds that
Keftiu is especially Crete, but probably included much more. The name
is practically confined to documents of the XVIIIth Dynasty. The peoples
of the sea enumerated by Menephtah and Eameses III. and various
northern tribes mentioned in other documents are discussed, and some of
Prof. Petrie's new identifications provisionally accepted.
Mr. Hall allows the following identifications;—
(1) Khetan allies (Eameses II.)
Lukki = Lycians Dardenui — Jebel Durdun in Cilicia
Pidasa = Pisidians Ariwenna = Oroanda
Kalakisha = Cilicians Kazauadana = Kataonians
(2) Libyan allies (Merenptah)
Akhauasha = Akhaeans Shakelesha = Segalassians of Pisidia
(3) peoples of the sea (Eameses III.)
Danauna = Danuna of El Amarna letters, in Syria, perhaps — Danaoi
(Pelasgians ?) from Crete.
Pulesata = Philistines from Crete.
Uashasha = Axians of Crete.
Lastly, two objects from Mycenae, now at Athens, bearing Egyptian
cartouches are figured. The name of Amenhotep II. is the earliest yet

Groff has curious speculations on certain connections of Egypt with
the Bible—Moses in the Egyptian texts, the date of year 5 in the Israel-
