… ubique naufragium …? Aspekte und Bedeutungen von Schiffsdarstellungen im Grab
II. Repertorium der Schiffsdarstellungen auf Grabdenkmälern der hellenistischen und römischen Zeit unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Inschriften
The online collection (Online-Repertorium) presented here was created out of the material used by the author for a recently published study on aspects and meaning of the representation of ships in burial monuments. Beginning simply as the by-product of preparation for the study, the collection of over 500 examples of relevant presentations of ships in the context of burial monuments was too comprehensive simply to file away at the end of study and not to make available for further use. The decision to publish electronically was guided by the intention of making as much visual material available as possible, by using hyperlinks from digital content available freely on the net. Publishing this amount of material in printed form would have been totally impractical. This online collection presents itself as a reliable source of material about the presentation of ships in burial monuments, with particular reference to the inscriptions evidenced there, alongside the current relevant collections concerning the presentation of ships in the collection from I. Pekáry and the Navis II database.
