THE following notes are an attempt to recapitulate the essential stages in the development of the southern side of the western Tethys and of the Mediterranean. They refer particularly to Leo Picard's publications, especially "Structure and Evolution of Palestine, with Comparative Notes on Neighbouring Countries"*, from the point of view of the geologist who has some familiarity with north African problems. Much that is still in doubt and much of local significance must inevitably be omitted; nevertheless a broad review of this type may be useful at the present juncture.
