The ashes of Prof. Sigmund Freud are resting in an ancient Etruscan vase which the late scientist brought to England with him from Vienn. The vase is mounted on a tall, slender triangular column erected to his memory. Designed by his son. Ernst, the column bears the sole in-scription: “Sigmund Freud, 1856-1939.”
