PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.

In this Guide I have attempted to give in a brief form a description of the Greek and Roman Antiquities in the British Museum. Such facts are stated as are necessary in order that the historical portions and interest of the different groups of objects may be understood, and points of special interest in the separate objects are also indicated. In the accounts of the several Rooms references are given to the larger Catalogues, which should be consulted by those who wish to study the collections in greater detail.

Several sections of the Guide have been rewritten in the present edition, and additional or improved blocks have been inserted.

ARTHUR H. Smith.

BRITISH MUSEUM.
