P.S.—Since this Report was written, several publications have been
received which deserve notice. The most important is part viii. of
Wessely's Studicn,43 containing the second half of his corpus of brief
documents (receipts) of the Byzantine period. It includes the text of
645 documents, with full indices to both this part of the collection and its
predecessor (part iii. of the Studien). It is a very complete storehouse
of materials for the study of documents of this class. Part vii. of the
Studien44 is a smaller work, consisting of a collection of demotic and
Greek texts from mummy-tablets, edited by K Eeich. Prof. E. Guq45
has published a study of a papyrus in the British Museum (No. 1157,
col. 3), an application for an order forbidding a debtor to alienate his
property. Prof. H. Lietzmann 46 makes a beginning of the publication
of the small collection of papyri at Jena by printing a short and very
corrupt Christian text, apparently intended as an amulet. The new
Annals of Archaeology and Anthropology, the publication of which has
just been undertaken at Liverpool University, includes an interesting-
article by J. G. Milne47 on the copper coinage of the Ptolemies, in which
he endeavours to identify the extant coins with the names (obol, etc.)
known to us from the accounts. M. Jean Maspero has printed48 four
inscriptions from the temple of Kalabsheh, containing dedications in
barbarous Greek by two Nubian kings of the 5 th or 6 th century ; and a
mutilated inscription from Esneh, containing the name of a new
epistrategus of the Thebaid, Gallus Marianus, of the reign of Hadrian.
Finally, Prof. Witkowski49 has published a few notes on the Leyden
papyrus (pap. U), containing the dream of Neetanebus. It might also
have been mentioned that a survey by the present writer of the general
results of the discoveries of Greek literary texts on papyrus appeared in
the Quarterly Review for April last.
