When the Catalogue of Bronzes, Greek, Roman and Etruscan, in the Department of Greek and Roman Antiquities was drawn up by Mr. H. B. Walters in 1899, several of the principal specimens were left unillustrated, with the intention that they should be dealt with in a separate volume, with illustrations of finer quality than those appropriate to a Catalogue. In fulfilment of that scheme, the present volume contains the most important Greek, Roman and Etruscan bronzes, previously unillustrated. To these have been added :(i) Some of the best specimens among those already given ;(2) some important recent accessions; and also (3) six plates (N os. XL., LI., LX., LXIL, LXVIL, LXXII.) of choice examples which were found in this country, and are preserved in the Department of British and Mediaeval A ntiquities. The commentary and arrangement are the work of Mr. H. B. Walters. The proofs have also been read by Mr. F. N. Pryce and by myself. A. H. SMITH. March i, 1915.
