Comments 

The study of Aegyptiaca (in French) occupies the major part of this volume (pp. 1-157). It is divided into three main sections concerned with scarabs, scaraboids and seals, amulettes and vases. Details of 77 scarabs, scaraboids and seals are listed in a catalogue followed by conclusions to be drawn from their study. Amulets, numbering 184, of very varied types are also catalogued, followed by a lengthy discussion of their occurrence, distribution and significance in Egypt and elsewhere in the Near East. One faience vessel and two fragments thereof are discussed in the final section, Boardman deals with the non-Egyptian intaglios found in the tombs, the stones providing a good representative selection of the glyptic styles of Cyprus, mainly of the 6th century but with several earlier and later. Twenty one silver coins of the fifth century B.C. are published by Picard, and 62 coins of the Graeco-Roman period are discussed by Nicolaou. The final section is concerned with 42 inscribed objects from the various necropoleis. These are mainly funerary cippi, sometimes found in tombs which also contained other Roman artifacts.
