Dedication

DEAR PRINCIPAL DONALDSON:

I TAKE the liberty of inscribing your name to this volume in grateful remembrance of the hospitality I have enjoyed in the University of St. Andrews, as Gifford lecturer for 1899–1900. The volume contains those parts only of my lectures which refer to recent archæological and historical research in Rome, and which have not appeared in my previous publications.

RODOLFO LANCIANI.

ROME, July 1, 1901.

TO JAMES DONALDSON, M. A., LL. D.,
Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of St. Andrews.

But I will sing above all moniments

Seven Romane hils, the world's seven Wonderments.

SPENSER.
