The inscription runs thus: --Petri, Pauli, Andri, Jacobi, Johannis, Piliphi, Bartholomei, Thomae, Mathei, Jacobi, Tatheus, Simon.

It is also found in the Bobio Missal printed by Mabillon, "Museum Italicum" (t. i. 279), the only difference being that the order of names at the end slightly varies. No example has hitherto been found in Great Britain of the same class as this exquisite chalice.

For illustrations and further particulars of this chalice, see Paper by Edwin, third Earl of Dunraven--"Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy," vol. xxiv. p. 433 (1869). BOOK-SHRINES.
