forty years past. Lieblkin died on 13 Aug. 1911, at the age of 84.
According to a notice in the Athenaeum of 2 Sept., " till his 20th year he
was a workman at the sawmills; later he became a clerk, and not till his
28th year was he able to attain his ambition and become a student at the
University of Christiania. In 1876 he was appointed Professor at that
University." His last work is noticed above, p. 34.

No discoveries of the first magnitude have been announced during the
past year, and no publication of texts of quite first-class importance has
appeared; but several of the volumes that have been issued are very
substantial contributions to knowledge, and one, at least, breaks what is
practically new ground. Two volumes which contain nothing but literary
texts should perhaps be mentioned first. Dr. Hunt's first volume of the
catalogue of the Greek papyri in the Eylands Library at Manchester1
contains descriptions and transcripts of 64 documents, of which 12 are
theological, 32 are fragments of new classical texts, and 20 are from
works previously known. The theological -texts are small and of no great
importance; but they include a fourth century fragment of Deuteronomy,
two leaves of a papyrus codex of Job which turns out to be identical with
Amherst Pap. 4, a sixth century (or possibly even earlier), copy of the
Nicene Creed, unfortunately imperfect, and another Melius or certificate
of having offered sacrifice at the time of the Decian persecution in
a.d. 250. In connection with this last text it may be observed here that
Prof. P. M. Meyer has announced that a number of similar libclli are in
the Hamburg Library and will shortly be edited by him.
The new classical texts in the Eylands collection are very small in
extent, and for the most part can be assigned to no known author.
Among them is a small historical fragment, in which Chilon and
Anaxandrides of Sparta are apparently named as having taken leading
parts in the overthrow of tyrants in Greece; a fragment of an epitome
of the 47th book of the PMlippica of Theopompus; a summary of events
at Troy after the death of Achilles ; a fragment of a Homeric glossary
