Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ...1907, pp.397-399 (pi.), II. II. Si'oKR publishes eight small Palmyrene tesserae tearing each a single name and containing various figures and ornamental devices. SCYTHOPOLIS.--Present State of the Ruins.--In Pal. Ex. Fund, XXXIX, pp. 100-101, R. A. S. Macam.ister describes the advantages that Beisau or Scythopolis offers as a place for excavation.
