Abstract: The general methods for the determination of maximal finite absolutely irreducible subgroups of $ GL(n,{\mathbf{Z}})$ developed in Part I of this series of papers [6] are refined for even n. Applications are made to $ n = 8$ in view of Part V [7], where a complete classification is obtained.
