Graffiti of Ships in the Bahá'í Mansion at Mazra'ih, Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Graffiti of ships were found on a wall of a courtyard of the Bahá'í mansion in the village of Mazra'ih, near Akko, Israel. It is suggested that three graffiti depict frigates, near Akko, the largest of about 850 t burden, some time in the second quarter of the nineteenth century. This is evidence for maritime activities at Akko in these years, and for the type of ships.
