The discussions of individual amulets and of type groups will be more useful to the reader if the pertinent illustrations are examined at the same time. In order to make this easier, both the text and the footnotes of the following chapters are provided with many references by number to the second part of the book, which consists of the plates preceded by methodical descriptions in catalogue form. These numbers are distinguished from others, such as registration numbers of museums, by the letter D., which is prefixed. Thus D. 135 means that the object thus marked is described in detail in the section "Descriptions of the Plates," and that a figure of it appears in its proper numerical order on one of the plates. In a few instances, when photographs could not be obtained, descriptions have been given without corresponding figures.

In references to printed catalogues of museums or large private collections, the numbers are those of the items described, not of the pages, unless p. or pp. is prefixed.

When objects in the British Museum are mentioned with a five-digit number beginning 56, that is to be understood as a registry or inventory number, not as an item in a published catalogue.

It has been found expedient to assemble on Plates XXII-XXV the eight figures to which reference is made in the body of the book.
