Ayrton rearranges the royal relationships of the end of the XlXth
Dynasty: Tausert was wife of Sety II, and surviving him, reigned for a
time independently : Amenmeses usurped the throne, but Siptah, son
of Tausert, was put into possession of his rights by Bai. P.S.B.A.

Legrain tabulates a new arrangement of the XXIInd Dynasty with
collateral kings of the XXIIIrd and other Dynasties, Bee. de Trav.

Spiegelberg discusses the name Psammetichus, and suggests that it
means "the man of (a god named) Methk," considering that "seller of
mixing bowls" could never be the real meaning of a royal name. He gives
also the demotic equivalent of the name Inaros from a bilingual 0. L Z.

Egypt's dominion of the sea to a period of sixty years from 664 to 604,
covering the reigns of Psammetichus I and Necho. The period of sixty

>, In the Revue d'Egypte et d'Orienf, February, 1906, Maspero describes
a visit to Asfun to examine the name of" Psammetichus, son of Neith
Maukheperre/' on the recently discovered ruins of a chapel near the

Valuable study of the title "father of the god," as the term for the

times, is slightly touched upon. Borchardt, Kon. Sachs. Ges., Berichten
Legrain makes the practical recommendation that Egyptian genea-
logical trees should be constructed from the texts in the order given by
