It is with enormous pleasure that we learn of the award to Martin West of membership of the Order of Merit,  a special honour awarded by the monarch to individuals of great achievement in the fields of the arts, learning, literature and science.  Martin West follows in a line of Classicists consisting of Ronald Syme, Gilbert Murray, J.W. Mackail, Henry Jackson, and Richard Claverhouse Jebb; there are only 24 members at any one time.  We congratulate him most warmly.
