Roman wine ship
What originally served as a tomb stone of a wine merchant! The Neumagener wine ship of approximately 220 AD displays two men steering the boat in which we find six rowers and 22 wooden rudder. The form of barrels, and the fact that this boat is rowed, suggests that this ship was owned by a local wine merchant from the Mosel region.
This Roman wine ship was found in Neumagen, Germany. The original is kept in the National Museum at Trier. A copy is now at the St. Peter's Chapel in Neumagen-Dhron.
