In regard to the latter the author admits that consistency has not been attained, but his aim has been rather to avoid unnecessary Latinising on the one hand and pedantry on the other. Finally, the author desires to express his warmest acknowledgments to all who have been of assistance to him in his work, by their writings or otherwise, especially to a friend, desiring to be nameless, who has kindly read through the proofs and made many useful suggestions ;to the invaluable works of many foreign scholars, more particularly those of M. Pottier, M. Salomon Reinach, and M. Dechelette, he owes a debt which even a constant acknowledgment in the text hardly repays. Thanks are also due to the Trustees of theB ritish Museum for kind permission to reproduce their blocks for Figs. 75, 109, 118, 125, 128, 131, 138, 185, 191, and 197, to M. Dechelette for permission to reproduce from his work the vases given in Figs. 224, 226, and to the Committee of theB ritish School at A thens for similar facilities in regard toP late XIV. (pottery from Crete). Lastly, but by no means least, the author desires to express toM r. Hallam Murray his deep sense of obligation for the warm interest he has shown in the work throughout and for the pains he has taken to ensure the success of its outward appearance. H. B. W.
