Abstract: The present article aims to examine some iconographic aspects of ship representations on Late Helladic III C pictorial pottery (c.1220-1075 BC). Our primary focus is on the function of the ship motif within the context of the Aegean and contemporary Eastern Mediterranean iconography with emphasis on artistic conventions. Two basic iconographic elements, the figurehead prows and the so-called "horizontal ladder" pattern, are briefly considered and some new interpretations are suggested.
