Quft. A naos of Nectanebo and the lower part of a sarcophagus, of
Harsiesi, have been obtained from the sebakh-digging.

Through Mr. Carter we also have received the following account by
M. Legrain of his work at Karnak between Sept. 28th, 1903, and July
5th, 1904, including an unprecedented find of statues and votive objects
of every kind. A long article on this great discovery has been contributed
to the Vossische Zeitung for Sept. 27th, 1904, by Prof. Schweinfurth, who
states that the heads of the statues are generally in perfect preservation
and that long inscriptions are numerous. The monuments rarjge from the
Old Kingdom, of which there is at least one statue, down to the end of the
Ptolemaic period. Apparently M. Legrain only needs a powerful pump to
enable him to recover further treasures, the trench being at present deep
in water.
