: can anyone help me with the partly obscured images on the sides of these ships? please?

Danny,

As you may already be aware the words are probably ancient greek. Ancient greek words often did end in consonants. The only "word" I could make out was on the 2nd ship. The last 3 letters of "alt" (). I found that the ancient greek word for 'sea' is "als" ( or rather c). I would also say that the words or letters are abbreviations of the full words making the statements on the ships' side.

I may be able to help you more if you could tell me in what context you found these ships? That is, are they to do with Homer perhaps -one of his epics, or any other ancient greek stories?

Joanna.
