KÖHLER, Ulrich, German archæologist: b. Klein-Neuhausen, grand duchy of Weimar, 6 Nov. 1838; d. Berlin, 24 Oct. 1903. He studied at Jena and was appointed secretary of the Prussian embassy at Athens (1865) and later was made professor of archæology at Strassburg. He was governor of the newly-founded Archæological Institute at Athens (1875) and was appointed professor of ancient history at Berlin (1886). His principal work is the second volume of ‘Corpus inscriptionum atticarum’ (Berlin 1877-95), which contains the inscriptions from the time of the Archon Euclides to Augustus. Important also is his ‘Urkunden und Untersuchungen zur Geschichte des delisch-attischen Bundes’ (Berlin 1870).
