V. Calice (A. Z. xxxv. 171) deals with the growth of the use of hori-
zontal m. He also suggests that s'uh " nobility/' written with a goat
wearing a collar, lias the same origin as the Arabic srh " to be free";
cf. German " Freiherr." An ingenious and attractive idea.

Moller (A. Z. xxxvi. 166), from a late text, confirms the reading byt,
for the bee.

Piehl (A. Z. xxxvi. 85) finds an instance of the word " honey " spelt
baut, or ubat. In Sphinx II. 1, the same writer gives the meaning of
several very curious words and signs in Ptolemaic and Roman inscrip-
tions ; ib. 4, a note on the Egyptian word for 6; ib. 59, a note on
the Ptolemaic word akem ''shield"; ib. 60, a note on the false sub-
stitution of the lion for the plough through misreading of the hieratic;
ib. 130, a note on a false word in Brugsch's Dictionary; ib. 87, many
emendations of the texts of Edfu; ib. 112, review of Erman's Ge-
sprdeh eines Lebensmiiden ; ib. 52, short reviews of various memoirs ;
ib. 76, notes that Ptolemaic variants give t for the fern. suff. 1st pers.
sing., and suspects that this inflexion is ancient. In P. 8. B. A. xx. 190,
he has also a note on the reading of the " diadem " title, and on words
from Ptolemaic texts.

V. Bissing (Rec. de Tr. xix. 187) discusses the uses of the particle dst
in Dyn. XVIII.

Griffith (P. 8. B. A. xix. 293). Some philological notes.

Maspeeo {Rec. de Tr. xix. 149 ; xix. 146) continues his studies on the
vocalization of Egyptian. Reviewed by Piehl, Sphinx II. 121.

Moret {Rec. de Tr. xix. 121) continues his article on the word amaJch

Lieblein (P. S. B. A. xx. 202) contributes notes on Egyptian words in
the Bible.

Erman [A. Z. xxxv. 152) attacks Ethiopian hieroglyphs—which are
hitherto unread. Starting from Lepsius5 discovery of a certain royal
name written both in Egyptian and in Ethiopian, he identifies several
signs and groups.

Religion and Mythology.

Petrie, Religion and Conscience in Ancient Egypt. Seven lectures
giving an analysis of the Egyptian pantheon (racial origin of the
separate deities), and of Egyptian moral sayings, &c, reviewed by
Maspeeo, Rev. de I'Histoire des Religions, xxxvii. 453.

Piehl {Sphinx II. 119) reviews Lange's account of Egyptian Religion
in de SauSSAYB's Lehrbuch der Religion's Geschichte.
