Richard Chandler, an English archaeologist, born at Elson, Hampshire, in 1738, died at Tilehurst, Berkshire, Feb. 9,1810. He studied at Winchester and Oxford, held various livings in Hants, travelled extensively in Asia Minor, Greece, and other countries, and in 1800 was appointed rector at Tilehurst, where he spent the rest of his life. His works include a celebrated edition, undertaken under the auspices of the Oxford university, of the Marmora Oxo-niensia (17(33); "The Ionian Antiquities, or Ruins of Magnificent and Famous Buildings in Ionia," published jointly with the artists Revett and Pars, his fellow travellers, as the result of their explorations under the auspices of the dilettanti society (2 vols, fol, London, 1709-1800); and Inscriptiones Antiques, etc. (Oxford, 1774). He left a life of William Wayntiete, bishop of Winchester, and founder of Magdalen college, which was published in 1811. His most remarkable productions are his " Travels in Asia Minor" (Oxford, 1775), and in Greece (1776), which proved very useful to Barthele-myin the preparation of his Anacharsis. Ser-vois and Barbie du Bocage corrected some of the errors of these works in their French translation (3 vols., Riom, 1800). A new English edition, with notes by Revett, was published by the Rev. R. Churton, with a biography of the author (2 vols. 8vo, 1835). Chandler also prepared, in vindication of Homer's descriptions, a " History of Ilium, or Troy," as a continuation of these works (first part, London, 1802).
