WE regret to record the death of Prof. Luigi Pernier, professor of archæology and the history of ancient art in the University of Florence, which took place in Rhodes at the age of sixty-two years in August last, while he was attending the Dante Alighieri course of "Alta Culture". His death is a great loss to archæological studies in Italy, more especially in connexion with the investigation of the sites of the early civilizations of the Mediterranean area.
