    The Roman Balance in South America.—Mr. Erland Nordenskiöld has reprinted from the journal of the Société des Americanistes de Paris (N.S. vol. xiii., 1921) an article sub-entitled “Emploi de la balance romaine en Amérique du Sud avant la conquéte.” He produces evidence, with a full bibliography of authorities, to show that this invention was not confined to the Old World, but was found in the New World before the discovery of America.
