that Manetho built up Lis history from such materials as these, and
that his lists of kings were greatly influenced by them. Bee. de Trav.
■Yon Bissing describes the erasures in the temple of Amenhotep III at
El Kab. They appear all to be due to xikhenaten, and the restorations to
Seti I, who restores in most cases the name of Amenhotep, but in some
conspicuous places for special reasons inserts his own name. Similar
examples are to be found in monuments of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III.
This goes to disprove Sethe's elaborate reconstruction of the history of
Hatshepsut from the erasures and restorations of the names in Deir el-
Bahari. A. Z. xli. 126.
Peteie contributes some notes on the later Egyptian Dynasties to
P. 8. B. A. xxvi. 283, especially regarding the XXIst Dynasty, Semitic (?)
origin of Dynasty XXII, Musri-Misri etc. The results are included in
The full protocol of Osorkon II. Legeatn, Ann. v. 281.
If the accepted order of the kings is correct, Sesonchis II can only have
reigned as a contemporary of his father Osorkon II, and must have died
some years before the latter, who then adopted Takellothis II as co-regent.

Two unrecorded kings of late times. Bevillout, Comptes Iiendus, 1904,
Schaeee on the Asmach or Sembrites. After the Ethiopian Dynasty
and its repulse by the Assyrians, Ethiopia became the refuge of
Egyptian kings driven out by foreigners and probably of other exiles
from Egypt. The district in which' the "Sembrites," deserters from
Psammetichus, are said to have settled must be the neighbourhood of
Aloa, between the Blue and the White Nile. A good parallel is
seen in an inscription in the Louvre of one Eshor, who was in com-
mand of the frontier post at Elephantine under Apries, telling of the
mixed garrison of Greeks and Asiatics having " determined to depart to
Shashert, but he prevented them and brought them to his Majesty, who
punished them." Schafer shows that Shashert is in Tapedt, south of the
land of Wawat, i.e. south of the Second Cataract. This is proved by
the Myth of Horus of Edfu, in which the god follows the same route
as the hero of the Story of the Shipwrecked Sailor, and reaches the
Upper Nile by ship by way of the Bed Sea coast. The garrison of Ele-
phantine, according to the numbers in Boman times, would consist of about
1,500 men. Herodotus' 240,000 men from the three frontier posts may safely
be reduced to about 1,500 men from Elephantine, since it would be only
