Progress of Egyptology.

autumn, in a part of the Kom which is being removed by the Railways
Administration. It lay not far from the temple and at about the same
level. The date is given by two gold bracelets bearing the cartouche of
Eameses II. and a gold cup with the name of Queen Tausert. The things
which were first found were stolen by the workmen, and we managed to
recover only part of them ; later on a second lot of similar objects was found
close by and was excavated by our own men. The best pieces of the
treasure are to be published in the next facsimile of the Musec Hgypiien.

" At a place called Barnugi, not far from Damanhour, we excavated two
good tombs with remains of paintings and inscriptions on the walls.
Their date has not been exactly determined, but it seems to be between
the Vlth and Xllth Dynasties. Just about the same time a few tombs
were found at Tell Eob (Mendes) quite close to the foundations of the
temple, which, though plundered, bore evidence of belonging to the Vlth
Dynasty. I mention these finds because it is so seldom that such early
remains are met with in the Delta.

" Tombs, said to be of the XVIIIth Dynasty, have lately been found
right beneath the great fortification walls at Tonkh el Qarmus.

" During the winter I tested one or two spots at Sa el-Hagar (Sais), but
did not come upon anything promising."
