A Rock Incision of a Ship in the Harbour of Myrina on Lemnos

On the west coast of Lemnos, in the natural harbour of Myrina and at the foothill of Kastro, a representation of a rowing ship is incised on the vertical, carved surface of a rock. The dating of the ship presents difficulties, not only because of the poor preservation of the image; the site seems to have been frequented from the Geometric to the Roman period and until today, therefore the incision of the ship cannot be undisputably ascribed to any historic phase.
