DISTRIBUTION LIST OF ANTIQUES
THIS List is intended to show the distribution of the selected antiquities shown in Plates I—XXXIV between Harvard University, the Iranian Government, and the British Museum, made in accordance with the proposal which was submitted with the recommendation of His Iranian Majesty's Minister at London, and approved by the Iranian Ministry of Public Instruction.
A small selection of objects most of which are not reproduced in the Plates has been deposited at the Iranian Legation, London, as suggested by His Excellency Mirza Hussein Ala, Iranian Minister at the Court of St. James, whose effective help in all arrangements concerning the distribution deserves to be very gratefully acknowledged here.
Objects allotted to Harvard University are indicated by a dagger (1-); those allotted to the British Museum, by an asterisk (*) ; those allotted to the Iranian Government, by a double-dagger (T.) ; and the remainder are deposited at the Iranian Legation, London.
The very large remaining portion of the collection, numbering about 6,000 pieces, has been divided between Harvard University and the British Museum, in shares approximately corresponding to six-sevenths and one-seventh.
