In presenting the following account of the work of the Eckley B. Coxe, Jr., Expedition of the University Museum at the Pyramid site of Meydûm, only a portion of the accomplishments of the 1929-30 season are described. Other considerable excavations were conducted in connection with the large Mastabah, called Number Seventeen, lying at the northeast corner of the Pyramid, as well as in uncovering a large number of tombs in the area surrounding the Pyramid. It has been felt, however, that the publication of the results of both these phases of the work had best be postponed until material gathered by further research is assembled. It is expected that a complete account of these aspects of the Coxe Expedition’s work will appear in due course in these pages.
