Greco-Roman terracotta figure of a boat, 100 B.C.-100 A.D.

This terracotta modeled ship is proof of the importance the Greeks attached to the sea, the need for trade and the importance of boats. The Greco-Roman religious sculptures belonging to the Greek period are an incalculable testimony to the daily life and religion of the society of the time. They were made in terracotta on a mould as they were cheap and easy to produce. As they were of low cost they were perfect to be used as religious offerings.
