completed, and the whole construction could be planned. This was done
by M. Edmond Fatio, an architect from Geneva, under the supervision of
Mr. Somers Clarke. Plans and restorations will appear in the second
part of The Xlth Dynasty Temple at Deir el-Bdhari; a portion of the
plan, showing the discoveries of 1907, appears here as PL i. The
mound of rubbish on the northern side of the ramp was carried away
by Mr. Currelly and Mr. Dalison after my departure in March. The
south side of the unfinished XVIIIth Dynasty ramp {Arch. Rep. 1903-4,
p. 1; PI. iii., Fig. 7) was found to be without a facing wall. Piemains of
two walls joining it at right angles are uncovered.

This last campaign, which was interesting chiefly in regard to archi-
tecture, has not given us so many portable objects as some of the
former ones. However we obtained more sculpture, and names of
kings which are either new or little known. At the entrance of the
passage were found fragments of a small shrine, on one of the sides of
which stands the following inscription:—f ^ -f q f The name
of Senbmaiu had previously been found at
by Mr. Frazer.1 The prenomen Suahenra is
Kamak list, and was assigned by Lieblein
XIHth or XlVth Dynasty. This inscrip- v "v tion from

Deir el-Bahari has been assigned to Cairo, with most of those men-
tioned below. A fragment completed a cartouche which had been found
by us,2 and reads thus:—^—s—x Sekhaenra Mentuhetep. This
king seems to belong to q ^-'^ the same group as the other.
The same also must be f) e z=> said of—^—Ea-Sebekhetep, a

When Mr. Currelly had finished the clearing of the mound near the
ramp, when all the inscribed fragments which were not destined for the
European and American museums had been stored in two or three tombs,
and when the sarcophagus of Henhenit, hoisted out of her tomb last year
by Mr. Hall," had been despatched to New York, the site was handed over
