Akrotiri Marine Festival fresco
Naval Fresco from Akrotiri, Thera, c. 1650-1500
This fresco shows a scene of the Minoan harber of ships and the sea. The ships are all merchant or recreational, showing the a much more peaceful Minoan culture than the Athens enslaving kingdom the Greek mythology thought the Minoans of. The evidence of a peaceful kingdom can be seen by the lack of soldiers or any military naval ships.
