Excerpt from Guide to the Archaeological Museum of the American University of Beirut

Beirut, Cyprus, Egypt and Greece. Large numbers 0. Ob jects have been bought locally, from time to time, sometimes singly, sometimes in groups, which possess greater interest m that they are of Phoenician provenance: the most im portant ofthese are the large group of vases from the Bika' (case 1 8 a group (not all of the same date) from Muhin, a tomb - group from Gharit'ah, and a series of Palestinian and trans-jordanian int and bronze implements. In and after 1904 the Museum secured its excellent series of Palmyrene limestone busts. A few donations have been made by indi viduals, e. G. Of classical sculpture by Dr. H. H. Jessup, of inscriptions by the late Mr. Murad Baroody, of pottery and minor objects by Mr. Frederick J. Bliss, but the Uni versity might justly expect from the d/zzmm a more tan gibl e proof of their interest in their nation 3 history and of their private gratitude to the institution in the shape ofgifts to its Museum.

The arrangement of the collections is intended to illus trate as far as is possible the progress of civilization in South ern Syria, i. E. In Phoenicia and Palestine, and to assist the historical student whose interest in archeeology is butsecondary. Objects are classified by their date and by their country oforigin. Each wall - case represents a period whose \limits are marked by the label above it: the objects in the case either come from one area, also clearly described, or from distinct areas, in which case they are arranged on dif ferent shelves labelled accordingly; where the exact find Spot of an object is known and is ofinterest an individual label is attached to the object. The cases go in historical order from 1 to 42, starting on the right'of the entrance and running all round the gallery with the exception ofannex A oa where objects are put in desk - cases for the purpose of better exhibition is there any break in continuity requiring cross - reference from the side to the center of the room; but in the desk~cases also historical sequence is observed so far as is possible. Sculptures and inscriptions are placed as available space and the interests of exhibition allow.
