** Frontispiece
Mode of transporting a large colossus from the quarries. The statue is

bound upon a sledge with ropes; on the knee stands a man beating time with
his hands, and giving out a verse of a song; another stands on the base,
and pours a green liquid, evidently grease, from a vase, before the sledge.
In the upper line are companies of soldiers carrying green twigs; then
four rows of men, forty-three in each, dragging the statue with ropes;
and in the lowest line are others bearing implements, and vases of
grease, or other liquids, followed by “superintendents," or task-masters;
and behind the statue are other superintendents,” and perhaps reliefs
of men.
