W. H. Buckler, of Oxford, will give a lecture on "Byzantine Frescoes Recently Discovered in Cyprus" at 4 o'clock this afternoon in the Fogg Art Museum. The lecture will be supplemented with lantern slides and is open to the public.
Dr. Buckler is a 'native of Baltimore, who has been a lawyer, an archaeologist, an assistant director of the American Expedition to Sardis, and a special agent of the Embassy in London during the World War. He is vice-president of the Hellenic Society and the author of a book on "Lydian Inscriptions." The lecture will be of special interest because of the surprising recent advancement of Byzantine Art as revealed by the mosaics uncovered in 1928 in the great mosque at Damascus.
