Excerpt from Studies on the Times of Abraham

Plate I. Frontispiece. See page 92. Chromolithograph from a water-colour drawing by the Author. Remaining portion of one of the panels in relief, executed in a kind of porcelain, from the ruins of a palace of Ramescs III., at Tell-el-Yahudeh in Lower Kgypt. It is identified by Dr. Birch as representing a Kheta (Hittitc), although, apparently by an oversight of the artist, the cord round the neck terminates in the conventional ornament appropriate to captives from the South, the lotus, instead of the papyrus of the North. The blue enamel, now left only in front of the face, formerly covered the whole1 back-ground.

Plate II. See page 8. This and the following plates are produced in photo-tint. Perspective drawing of the ziggurat or stage-temple of the Moon-god at Ur (Mugheir), restored from data in the descriptions of Mr. Loftus and Mr. Taylor. The shrine on the top is given conjccturally. The lowest stage was built by Lig-bagas; the second by his son Dungi.

Plate III. Seepage 45. Seals and seal-cylinders, from casts by Mr. Ready.

A seems to represent the sacrifice of a bull to two gods ; one standing on a gryphon.
