Transcriber's notes:

(1) Numbers following letters (without space) like C2 were originally printed in subscript. Letter subscripts are preceded by an underscore, like C n.

(2) Characters following a carat (^) were printed in superscript.

(3) Side notes were relocated to function as titles of their respective paragraphs.

(4) Macrons and breves above letters and dots below letters were not inserted.

(5) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

Article CALIPH: "Mohallab was soon after deprived of the government of Khorasan, Hajjaj accusing him of partiality towards the rebels of Yemenite extraction." 'Hajjaj' amended from 'Majjaj'.

Article CALIPH: "Moreover, Hajjaj, in order to maintain the regular revenue from taxation, had been obliged to introduce stringent regulations ..." 'maintain' amended from 'maintian'.

Article CALIPH: "Yazid b. Mohallab, the enemy of Hajjaj, was made governor of Irak." 'Hajjaj' amended from 'Majjaj'.

Article CALIPH: "Still, they could not believe that it was according to the will of the caliph that they were thus treated, until a certain number of their chiefs went as a deputation to Hisham ..." 'were' amended from 'here'.
