obtaining payment for his professional services ; the recalcitrant debtor is
a man. Presumably further publications will follow as the result of
M. Jouguet's excavations.

Of texts on other materials than papyrus, brief mention may be made of
a handful of Alexandrian inscriptions, repeated by Prof, von Wilamowitz-
Moellendoi-ff10 from the Bulletin de la Societe archeologiqne, one being a
dedication by the Jews of a synagogue to the welfare of {yirep) the king,
Euergetes, and his queen. Another inscription belongs to a sun-dial, of
which it explains the use. M. Jouguet17 publishes twenty-eight ostraka
from the Fayum, of the middle of the third century ; they are similar in
form to a class of those published by Wilcken and by Grenfell aud Hunt,
and M. Jouguet proposes a new explanation of them, namely, that they are
notes of the issue of grain from the public granaries. The work of students
of inscriptions from Egypt will be facilitated in future by a new department
of the Archiv, a Bulletin epigraphique de VBgypte romaine, which has been
undertaken by M. de Eicci. The two instalments hitherto published13 in-
clude 151 inscriptions published between 1896-1902. For the P.i_l
period the same work is in the very competent hands of Prof. Stv E.

Turning from texts to articles based upon them, the first class o: =~
to be noticed is that of bibliographies. Ten years ago, when th E >"' x
