Foreign Relations.

MM. Capitan and Amand d'Agxel exhibited to the French Academy
two almost identical series of implements, the one collected in Egypt, the
other on the He de Riou, 13 kilometres from Marseilles. Many of the
types had not hitherto been found outside Egypt, and it is evident that
they had been brought thence to the island, but apparently in ancient
times. They are described as forming part of a series of remains of
different ages found on this deserted island and ranging from the Roman
to the early neolithic period. C. I!., 1905, 423.
