A merchant vessel sailing from the island of Cyprus about the year 400 B.C.. This ship was typical of the type in use in Greece in the first 5 centuries before Christ. Such vessels were usually built of pine, while the yard, joined together of 2 parts, and the mast were of spruce.
The stern post was carved with the face of a weathered sea-going man. Note the graceful shape of the hull. Here we begin to see the grace, beauty, and proportions of modern day ships.
