Dealer Notes
No. 59 of 225. This Ateiba horseman’s name was changed from ‘Seif’ (the form in which it appeared in the 1922 ‘Oxford’ edition of Seven Pillars of Wisdom) to ‘Serj’ in the 1926 ‘Subscriber’s’ edition of the text. In the 1926 text, Serj appears in chapters LXXXVIII and LXXXIX as one of two Ateibi horsemen who were lent by Feisal to accompany Lawrence as he transported thirty thousand pounds in gold across mountainous and inhospitable terrain in early February 1918 (cf. Seven Pillars of Wisdom (London, 1935), pp. 490-498).
