1. Biblical.—Ostraca with Greek biblical passages are not unknown :
Prof. Petrie brought some from Dendera. About twenty, with G-ospel
texts, are in the Cairo Museum, and have been edited by Lefebvre, who
suggests that, being continuous, they may have served as lectionaries.1

The few New Testament tests in the volume of miscellaneous Sa'idic frag-
ments, Paris MS. 102, are printed by M. Chaine, of the Catholic University
of They consist of passages from St. John and the Acts.

Hoener's edition of the Bohairic Gospels has now been followed by two
volumes containing the Epistles, Acts and Apocalypse, the text of the
first and second based on that of a British Museum MS., the third on one
of Lord Zouche's (Curzon), both of the early 14th century.'3 It is curious
to note that the Curzon volume claims to have been revised on one
belonging to the well-known chronicler, El-Makin (ob. 1205). Thirty-five
MSS. in all have been collated for this excellent edition. Still greater
interest will attach to H.'s forthcoming publication of the Sa'idic New
Testament. H. Y[incent ?] reviews the work in laudatory terms.3

More Sa'idic New Testament fragments from Bodleian MSS. are added
by Winstedt to those he had previously printed 1 (v. last Report, 74).

The ancient Sa'idic codex (v. photo, in Kenyon's Handbook, 160), whence
Goussen printed the Apocalypse, contained other texts besides, and
must indeed have been a thick volume, though so small (fol. 3£ x 2| in.),
for p. 429 is still extant. DelapoBTB, who is re-oditing the Apocalypse,
prints with collations and translation what remains of 1 Ep. Job. and
Philemon.5 These, it is to be noted, followed the Apocalypse.

In a long review of Balestri's Sa'idic New Testament, H. V[incent ?]
discusses the character of that version.0

2. Apocryphal, Gnostic .S'c.—Leifoldt edits a fragment, the first to be
found in Coptic, of 4 Ezra, ch. xiii, from a leaf in the Berlin Museum, and
B. Violet discusses—so far as its small extent permits—the form of text
it represents.7
