I am teaching myself to sketch. It has become a favorite hobby.

A Corbita and a Ponto
These drawings are the ones referenced in Lionel Casson's "Ships and Seamanship, In the Ancient World," Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore and London, 1995, Figure # 137. The ship pictures in the figure indicated above were not complete because of damage to the mosaic. I have redrawn them as probable sail rigs of the period.
