PREFATORY NOTE

This book was originally planned as the joint work of
my colleague, Dr Frank Gavin, and myself. Other
duties compelled him to withdraw from the under-
taking, but it none the less owes more than can be told
to his expert knowledge and lavishly given ad vice.
Appreciative thanks are also due to Dr E. R. Hardy
for his generous help in checking the translation from
the Sahidic.
