Provides Expenses for
Prof. Benjamin Dean Merritt, of'
the Latin and Greek department,
returned yesterday to Ann Arbor,'
following a short trip abroad in
Europe, extending from December
14 to 28, during which time he ob-:
tained valuable information con-
cerning ancient Greek inscriptions.
The expenses of the trip were de-
frayed by a grant of money from
the fund made available by the
Rockefeller Foundation for research
in the humanities.
Upon reaching Paris, Professor
Merritt's first point of destination
Was the Louvre; he had previously
planned to study there a preserved
inscription which he suspected
might throw new light on the offi-<
cial calendar of Athens in the fifth
century. In commenting on the re-
sults of his studies, Professor Mer-j
ritt declared, "During the four days
of my stay in Paris it was. possible
to obtain readings which definitely
determined the character of the:
official Athenian calendar. So far
as I was able I exhausted the pos-
ilities. s of gaining new evidence I s o '-t' rr t f. f'hoto
