Roman Grain Ship upgrade
- Greetings All;
I have upgraded the subject item on my blog (http://RomanStudies.blogspot.com
-- June 2, 2012,) for a better understanding of the picture. The
reference for the new material is:
--Lionel Casson, "The Ancient Mariners, Seafarers and Sea Fighters of
the Mediterranean in Ancient Times," 2nd Edition, Princeton Univ.
Press, Princeton, New Jersey. Plate #52
The purpose of the upgrade was to better understand what the Latin
words (labels) on the plate said and meant. Plate 52 is a wall
painting which was found at Ostia, and is now in the Vatican Museum
(second or third century, AD. Photo by Anderson.
