addition to the well-known forts of Semneh and Kummeh, planned by
Lepsius. Captain Lyons had discovered several temples and forts in 1892-3 ;
the German expedition found several more, planned them and copied the
inscriptions of all; they date originally from the Xllth Dynasty, and
were added to in the XVIIIth. Dr. Thiersch interested himself especially
in the Greek and Roman later remains.

Wherever the expedition stayed they copied, collated and planned. At
Thebes Steindorff copied the tomb of Rames, which dates from the beginning
of the reign of Amenhotep IV. It is to be hoped that the rich results
of this expedition will soon be made accessible by full publication. The
report is reviewed by Piehl (Sphinx, iv. 210).

of a tomb at Sheikh Abd el Kurneh in 1896. It contained four coffins, of
which the principal one was of Hataai, about the time of Akhenaten. In
