of his wholesome judgment that, though he knew how to use adroitly the political difficulties of his prince to the advantage of his diocese, he was able to remain a loyal friend of his own people, and also of Llewelyn until his death, if we except the years 1274-6, without forfeiting the useful friendship of the English king for more than the acute period of stress 1262-4. One is glad for the sake of his loyalty to his own people that he did not manage to "trim" more perfectly. Among patriotic Welsh clergy, he can hold an honourable place. Note.-Perhaps it is not altogether inappropriate here to recall the fact that an effigy of a bishop in St. Asaph cathedral, without inscription, that has sometimes been conjectured to represent Bishop Anian, was assigned to the second half of the fourteenth century by Mr. M. H. Bloxam, many years ago. (Arch. Camb. 1879, p, 111), Anian's seal is now in the British Museum (Seal No. E. 35), and describes him as "frater Anianus." (B.M. Cat. of Seals, I., p. 338.)
