Fouilles a Dcihchour.)

The present writer has brought his notes on the Rhind Mathematical
Papyrus to an end. (Proc. 8. 13. A. vol. xvi.)


M. de Morgan has followed up his extraordinary discoveries in the
pyramids of Dahshur by a most excellent publication of the results of last
year. Forty photographic plates and nearly three hundred blocks in the
text give views of the field of operations and the monuments, with plans
and details, as well as the types of the jewellery and other antiquities
discovered. M. de Morgan is rapidly making himself an ideal explorer,
able and practical, brilliant in discovery, rapid and accurate in giving the
record to the world. In this work he has had the assistance of MM.
Legrain and Jequier on the spot, and of MM. Berthelot, Loret and
Fouquet in working out some special points. (De Morgan's Fouilles a
Dahchour, Mars-Juin, 1894.)

The Burlington Fine Arts Club held an exhibition of Egyptian art
this summer in London. Many English public and private collections
were represented in it, and the Berlin Museum contributed a case of
choice specimens.

The Hoffmann collection of Egyptian antiquities, sold this year in Paris,
is recorded in a catalogue illustrated by forty-eight photographic plates
of the more important objects.

A most valuable catalogue of the Antiquities in the Berlin Museum
has been officially issued, and permanent photographs of many of the
objects described in it can be obtained at a very moderate cost. A
sumptuous volume of photogravures has likewise appeared.

An exquisite wooden statuette of a lady named Tui (about the XXIInd
Dynasty), recently acquired by the Louvre, has been jjublished by
M. Benedite, with three fine heliogravures. (Monuments et Memoires
publies par VAcademic des Inscriptions, 1895.) ,

The question of late restorations in the Pyramids has been again
treated by Borchardt, who also refuses to accept an early date for the
relief of Menkauhor. (Zeits. f. A. s. xxxii. 88 f. and 133.)

Steindorff has found a verse of a song, with the name of its composer,
and a sculpture with the name of the artist, both on one monument in
the Leyden Museum. (I. c. p. 123.)
