one opposite Assuan. The houses west of this call for no very special notice, and except the street leading from the main one already described to
the south-east door of the Coptic Church (P) narrow alleys alone twist about among them.

Between the colonnades one street is recognisable in front of the columns, but beyond this it is lost amongst the ruins of the Coptic
houses (Plan XI.). In the southern part of the island the general direction of the streets arc west, and some of the houses adjoining them are of
considerable size, especially near the back of the Eastern Colonnade, where some of the houses, which are built of stone, show a concave laying of
the courses similar to that employed in the Tcmenos wall. This part of the island seems to have been even more dug over than the northern part,
and often piles of rubbish of earlier excavations have obliterated the traces of any Coptic buildings there may have been. Fragments of Coptic and
other stone-work were found in many of the houses but hardly ever in place, having been moved about, as being convenient building material, by the
later Nubian inhabitants of the island.

PART IV.

In the following list of buildings the letter refers to Plan No. I. where the different buildings are so indicated ; the number has been used when
stones belonging to a building have been collected, numbered, and catalogued (Appendix "E") ; the period to which each is assigned pretends to no high
archaeological accuracy, but merely serves to indicate generally the class of work. The last column gives a reference number to the levels which form
Appendix " I)," where detailed descriptions of the level marks will be found.
