In printing Mr Morison's paper on Ancient Scottish Coins, we accidentally omitted the following Postscript :

"While on the subject of Coins, I shall feel obliged by you or any of your correspondents favouring me with a solution of the following difficulty. Amongst several pennies now in my custody, struck by princes on the Continent, (apparently about the time of Edward I. or II.) bearing various legends, such as I. DVX. LIMBVRGI.COMES ARNOLDVS.-G. COMES FLANDRIC, &c.; there are some with the obverse of I. COMES HANONIE.IOHS COMES HANONI, &c. with va rious reverses, such as MONETA MONTES, &c. But one of those bearing on the obverse IOHS COMES HANONI, has the very singular legend on the reverse of CIVITAS LONDON. The coin is entire, and the inscription perfectly legible. Had the die of the reverse of this coin been procured from England as a model or pattern, or to what cause are we to ascribe such a reverse on a Flemish coin?"

The Correspondents of the EDINBURGH MAGAZINE AND LITERARY MISCELLANY are respectfully requested to transmit their Communications for the Editors to ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE and COMPANY, Edinburgh, or LONGMAN and COMPANY, London, to whom also orders for the Work should be particularly addressed.
