exception of two largs ones, of which the complete clearance would occupy
most of a season. Though not much is to be expected at any rate from
the upper layers of these, we are, in view of the surprisingly good results
obtained last winter from very deep trenches, unwilling to leave the lower
levels of these two mounds unexplored; and, if sufficient funds are available,
we hope in the coming winter to be able to finish practically all those
parts of the site in which Greek papyri are to be found.

Besides the papyri, which have, as usual, all been sent to England for
publication, pending a later division with the Cairo Museum, few of the
other objects found were of much interest. About eighty ostraca were
discovered, nearly all of which belong to the fourth, fifth, or sixth centuries.
